Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program

Supporting Small Business Growth & Employment

The MGCC Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program builds operational capacity and skills of organizations that are providing technical assistance, education, and access to capital to small businesses, including many owned by women, minorities and veterans. The grant program strengthens ongoing business-development activities in low-and moderate-income and underserved communities, and in Gateway Cities across the state.

This state-funded Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program leverages community and economic development non-profits to help small businesses create and preserve jobs. The grants are awarded to community development corporations, chambers of commerce, and similar non-profits. They use the funds to provide crucial services, such as technical assistance, training in business skills, and access to financing, to their local businesses. In addition, we offer mini-grants, through our grantees, to small business owners with needs for professional, technical, and operational services.
