Community Development and Small Business Assistance Merge -
The Small Business Assistance Center has expanded its services to include Community Development. Along with the addition of two new staff members, this change will provide better customer service to the residents of Polk. Residents and community leaders can expect more resources specifically created for new entrepreneurs and existing small businesses, as well as grant resources and economic development tools geared toward community development.
In addition, the Community and Small Business assistance program will manage and monitor Polk County’s CRA’s, along with Polk’s economic development incentive programs. The program will have the ability to better align communities for economic growth through the creation of online and print materials developed with each community in mind. Businesses within the community can take advantage of resources such as the small business guide to make well informed decisions on location, funding and strategic planning. The Community and Small Business Assistance program strives to ensure that each community and its residents have access to the assistance and resources they need to grow and succeed.
