Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price
A Message From Betsy Price
As Mayor of Fort Worth and a former small business owner, I understand the unforeseen challenges and difficulties so many of our businesses and organizations are facing during this unprecedented time.

Fort Worth is a compassionate city with great promise, and we will not let COVID-19 diminish our values of hard work, resiliency, and perseverance.

That is why I am proud to help launch Fort Worth Now — an economic recovery and growth strike force that will lead Fort Worth’s post-COVID response to stabilize and restore local businesses, while strategically targeting growth sectors to equitably advance Fort Worth’s economy.

Fort Worth Now will strategically and aggressively usher in a new era of economic development by identifying key sectors and talent industries for new opportunities throughout our entire community.

Through this website, Fort Worth Now will serve as an online resource hub, streamlining access to business support services available throughout our community.

Together, as one Fort Worth, we will emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic stronger and build an equitable economy for a thriving community.

Mayor of the City of Fort Worth
