REACH - for Small Business Growth

REACH is a program for new American / immigrant owned businesses impacted by COVID. Reach can help you:

  • Strengthen your business’s foundations 
  • Recover from negative COVID impacts                                                                       
  • Prepare for future growth!

Reach is an ideal fit for:

  • Those in business for at least 3-5 years
  • Those who have managed to hang on during COVID and are now ready to learn more and make changes to set themselves up for future growth

All who apply will be referred for appropriate business services beyond this program. Some who apply may qualify for financing – such as loans or grants – and other opportunities for growth; this program will help business owners learn what they need to make preparations to qualify.
