ROTARY BACKS SMALL BUSINESS
Humble Rotary Foundation’s Harvey Relief Fund made a $20,000 matching contribution to the Lake Houston Harvey Small Business Grant Program. “We knew that many of our small businesses were still struggling after Hurricane Harvey and we felt that partnering with an existing and successful program made the most sense,” Pam McNair, Harvey Relief Fund co-chair, said. The Harvey Small Business Grant program has helped over 20 Lake Houston area businesses and recently eclipsed the $100,000 mark. To apply for a grant from the Lake Houston Harvey Small Business Grant Program, go to lakehoustonedp.org/grant and fill out the application.

HOUSTON’S AIRPORTS LAND IN TOP 10
Houston can brag about having not one, but two airports in the Top 10 of its size classification in the J.D. Power 2018 North America Airport Satisfaction Study recently released. Bush Intercontinental saw its score improve to 769 (on a scale of 1,000) and tied with Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for sixth on the list of “mega” airports, well above the median score of 758 for the largest airports in North America. That result raised Bush Airport five spots from its ranking in 2017. William P. Hobby saw its score raise slightly, to 768 (on a scale of 1,000), putting it in a tie with Salt Lake City for the No. 10 spot on the large airport list. More information can be found at JDPower.com.
