The program, established by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, will use a community navigator approach to help small businesses, with a focus on those owned by veterans, women, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals - including in rural and urban communities. The program comprises a lead “Hub” at the center of a network of “Spoke” organizations that deploy community advocates to work with small businesses during the economic recovery. Recovery services can include financial assistance, access to capital supports, contracting and procurement assistance, marketing, operations, business development, export and importing, and industry-specific training, among other areas of technical assistance to aid businesses in stabilization and expansion.

The U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Community Navigator Pilot Program grant was awarded to 51 applicants nationally out of a pool of over 700 applicants. The Community Navigator Program is part of a $100 million initiative to help reduce the barriers that underrepresented and underserved entrepreneurs face in accessing the programs and services that they need to recover, grow, or start their businesses. Neo-Biz Solutions is honored to have been engaged by the Greater South Fulton Chamber of Commerce to deliver the grant writing services that secured the award.
The profound needs of small business owners are being felt more than ever before. As we enter this phase of recovery, it is imperative that we reach every small business owner, from the disabled veteran in New York City to the rural farmer in Missouri,” said Mark Madrid Associate Administrator for the office of Entrepreneurial Development. “The historic Community Navigator Pilot Program catalyzes trusted community partners across America to support the smallest-of small businesses at this pivotal juncture. These champions’ grassroots efforts will materially advance equity in the support of small businesses by connecting small business owners with programs and resources that they need to start and grow their businesses.”
