The Benbrook Economic Development Corporation (BEDC) is offering a special program to help businesses and organizations continue serving the community during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
Businesses or organizations that put out temporary portable signs or banners as a way to promote their business during the crisis can apply for reimbursement through the BEDC.
The program is available to any business or organization in Benbrook considered "essential" as identified in the Executive Order recently issued by Tarrant County. The City will not require a permit for the sign, but sign costs must be considered reasonable as determined by the BEDC. We encourage you to contact us prior to purchasing a sign -- please call Hillary Cromer at 817-249-6091.
