SBA Houston District Office

You should always be prepared for a Disaster

Join the Houston District SBA Office, The American Red Cross, The SBA Office of Disaster Assistance and for a FREE Disaster Workshop.  As a small business, you should always be prepared for the unexpected.  Let SBA help you prepare for a disaster, before it happens.

“Forty percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster and another 25 percent fail within one year according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Similar statistics from the United States Small Business Administration indicate that over 90 percent of businesses fail within two years after being struck by a disaster.”  

This is an interactive workshop filled with information about what to do before and after a disaster happens.  Don’t miss the chance to talk one-on-one with disaster professionals, while developing a plan that works for you and your business.
