Small Business Administration offers grants

January 18, 2011

By Staff

Issaquah businesses could qualify for grants from the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The federal agency is accepting grant proposals from eligible national organizations interested in providing training, guidance, counseling, mentoring and procurement assistance to small businesses through the Small Business Teaming Pilot program.

Congress established the program in the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010, and the SBA expects to make 10 to 20 grant awards worth up to $5 million in the 2011 fiscal year.

Applicants must be a private, nonprofit or for-profit entity; have been in existence continually for the past three years; have experience dealing with issues relating to small business on a national level; and demonstrate a capacity to provide assistance to small businesses.

Proposals must be submitted through the governmentwide financial assistance portal, www.grants.gov, by 11:59 p.m. Feb. 25. Learn more about the program at the SBA website, www.sba.gov/teaming.
