The SSBCI Technical Assistance Grant Program will allow the MSF to contract with eligible TA providers, such as local and statewide entities, non-profit economic development organizations (EDO), small business support organizations (BSO), community development financial institutions (CDFI), cultural and ethnic Chambers of Commerce, and for-profit professional service firms, to financially support their efforts in providing quality legal, accounting and financial advisory services to SEDI-owned businesses or VSBs.
Collaborative application submissions are encouraged from eligible entities, including business support organizations, economic development organizations, for-profit or non-profit professional entities, community development financial institutions, and others. Applications submitted by SEDI-owned or operated entities will receive additional consideration. In a consortium application, there must be a lead applicant that will enter into a grant agreement with the MSF and assume primary operational and financial responsibility for completing the scope of work should an award be made.
Please review the SSBCI TA Grant Program Application Guide for additional details on eligible applicants.
