FY2024 SBTA Awardees

The purpose of the Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program is to expand economic and entrepreneurial opportunity throughout the Commonwealth. These programs are designed to complement and enhance the traditional public and private small business assistance network by providing technical assistance or training programs for underserved and disadvantaged businesses with 20 employees or fewer.

The total funding awarded for FY24 was $4,452,098 to 65 non-profit organizations throughout Massachusetts. MGCC would like to thank these organizations for their work and dedication in helping support small businesses through the Commonwealth.
