Small Business Help from States

Jan 22, 2010
Posted by Molly Nelson - Looking to your state or even local community may be a good bet for financial assistance for your small business.

This Entrepreneur article notes that while aid may be slow coming from the federal government, some states and local areas may be able to help small businesses with funds from the stimulus or from nonprofits and other organizations.

In addition, the NASE's Business Development Grant program will begin accepting applications for 2010 awards on February 1st, so be sure to apply if your business could use a little financial boost!
