COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 has created uncertainty across San Antonio. Below, find information and resources for the COVID-19 crisis in our community.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Sample Application Form

What is the Paycheck Protection Program and how much funding is available?

As part of the CARES Act, the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) will administrate the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), which authorizes up to $349 billion in potentially forgivable loans to small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. The PPP loan capital will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis starting April 3 and interested small businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible due to the likely high volume of applicants.

H-E-B – Senior Help Line

If you are a senior or might know a senior, who needs this valuable information at this time. For seniors that do not own a computer and have a smart phone and would like to do curbside pickup at HEB.

H-E-B shared the following:

They have just introduced a Senior Help Line for folks 60 and older.

  • The number is 1-833-397-0080. She said to press 2 after you call.
  • That Help Line is available from 11-3.
  • They will verbally take your order over the phone.
  • You will be speaking to live person, not a machine.
  • You should be prepared to be descriptive.
  • You may only order 25 items or less.
  • You must have a credit card to pay for the groceries.
  • HEB does not charge for this service but they contract with a group called Favor and HEB will add a $10.00 service fee to pay them.
  • You do not pay the person bringing you your groceries anything at all.
  • They need to be able to call you should they have a question about your order and they will also call you when they are at your home to deliver them.
  • You will also be delivered your groceries much faster than curbside pickup is available now.
