Vital support is becoming available to female business owners and entrepreneurs hit hardest by the Covid-19 pandemic.
A $420,000 grant to the Women’s Business Center (WBC) provides funding for “ReConnect. “ReStart. ReGrow.” The initiative provides business education and guidance to women entrepreneurs whose businesses have experienced supply chain disruptions, staffing challenges, or a decrease in revenue or customers. It also assists women seeking to launch a new business or capitalize on opportunities in response to the pandemic. Free classes and office hour appointments are available for a full 12 months.
The Small Business Administration awarded the grant to the WBC with funding from the CARES Act. Click here to read more about the new initiative.
