Small Business Storm Assistance

The Daily News has established a $150,000 set-aside marketing fund to assist local businesses in the recovery from this challenging economic time due to the ice storm.

The program will provide a dollar-for-dollar match for qualifying and approved plans. For example, $1,000 investment from a local business will earn a matching $1,000 by The Daily News – an effective 50% discount to the local business.

Local Galveston County businesses will earn priority approval.

Matching funds are available for print (The Daily News, Coast Monthly, etc.), digital (, opt-in newsletters, etc.), and custom marketing tools (video, etc.).
