Program Benefits

Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy. They provide local residents and surrounding anchor institutions with vital services, create jobs where they’re needed most, and generate wealth for the betterment of their respective communities. In light of the economic and financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, small businesses are more vital now than ever to local economies and small business ecosystems.
