SBA Extended Application Date for the Community Navigator Pilot Program from July 12, 2021 to July 23, 2021

July 12, 2021 - July 23, 2021

Details

The SBA extended the application date for the Community Navigator Pilot Program from July 12, 2021 to July 23, 2021, and anticipates making award decisions by September 2021. Established by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, the community navigator approach will reach our nation’s smallest businesses, with a priority focus on those owned by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, as well as women and veterans. The Biden-Harris Administration has made delivering equitable relief to hard-hit small businesses a top priority and will continue to take steps to ensure equitable distribution of relief.

The Community Navigator Program will have a significant impact in revitalizing small businesses through a Hub and Spoke “Navigator” featuring a lead “Hub” – at the center of a network of “Spoke” organizations that deploy trusted community advocates to work with small businesses during recovery. These networks leverage the business development expertise of the central hub organization and the community credibility of spoke organizations to better connect critical resources with small businesses, with the priority focus on those owned by women, veterans, and socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
