In partnership with local community organizations, we host training sessions for aspiring and current business owners. Training sessions offer a comprehensive understanding of best business practices and navigating barriers you may face in the day-to-day operations of your business. Training Sessions are offered in the Spring and Fall of each year. Scholarships are available for training sessions that have an associated cost.


Through our micro-grants programs we are able to reallocate resources to businesses owners. We issue grants to business owners who have a variety of needs and may have traditionally faced barriers in accessing grants. Grant opportunities are offered at varying times throughout the year.
