Webinar: Small Business Credit Initiative Funding for Small Business
Volusia County Economic Development
June 19, 2023
Volusia County Economic Development will host a free webinar from 10 to 11 a.m. June 27 with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) to provide information on the State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI). SSBCI is administered by DEO with the goal of promoting small business lending, supporting small business growth within Florida, and creating jobs that support families and build strong economies. SSBCI can help businesses in any industry access credit for any business purpose even if they don’t have much collateral or are in a rural area, very small or new. SSBCI has opportunities to access $142 million of loan funding specifically reserved for Florida for small businesses and entrepreneurs. These funds will support businesses owned or controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, including minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, rural or other targeted small business populations across the state. Registration is required to attend the Teams Meeting.
