New Initiative to support Hamilton County Small Businesses

513 Small Business Assist is a program designed to remove barriers that small business owners face when navigating recovery assistance programs. All eligible small businesses can receive one-on-one support with grant applications, business planning, marketing, access to funding, and much more.

We are excited to share that the 513 Small Business Assist Program was launched on July 14, 2021.
We are a proud partner of the Program, and we are honored to be a part of a working
coalition of local and national community and economic development organizations that each are committed to helping small businesses connect with the specific services that meet their unique needs.
