Throughout the last few months, the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation (EDC) has heard from many area businesses about the effect the COVID-19 pandemic has had upon the health of their business. As our local, state and national economies slowly begin to reopen, our organization wants to support area small businesses as they look to open their doors and welcome customers back. We recognize that our community’s vibrant small business economy is a key part of what helps us continue to promote Amarillo as a great place to live, work and play.
Beginning when Amarillo enters Phase 3 of reopening, the Amarillo EDC will be offering local businesses the opportunity to join our organization as promotional partners to communicate locally and nationally that the city of Amarillo is not only open for business but is also a great place to grow a business. Companies who are interested in participating need to submit the application form below to request to become a promotional partner. Promotional partners may be eligible to receive $5,000.00 for their work in promoting Amarillo. Only a limited number of businesses can become promotional partners as funding is limited. Qualifying businesses selected to become promotional partners will be chosen and paid on a first‐come, first‐serve basis once the requirements are met. Successful applicants will be contacted by the Amarillo EDC and will need to complete minor additional paperwork.
AFTER BEING APPROVED:
- Upon notification of your eligibility and/or acceptance as a marketing partner, you will have five business days to deliver original, completed, hard copy AND current W-9 to the Amarillo Economic Development Corporation
- Successful applicants will be contacted by the Amarillo EDC before serving as a promotional partner and will need to complete additional paperwork
