Grants for up to $250,000 a year for technical assistance and counseling for small businesses. The mission of the funding agency is to protect and assist small businesses throughout the United States. The purpose of the available funding is to support organizations that provide services to small businesses in order to facilitate their growth, expansion, innovation, increased productivity and management improvement.

Qualified organizations are invited to apply for one of two different types of grants: technical assistance and capacity building. Technical assistance grants are to provide training and technical assistance programs to disadvantaged entrepreneurs. Capacity building grants are to provide training and capacity building services to MDOs, microenterprise development programs, and groups of such organizations, to assist them in developing microenterprise training and services.

While funding is only for a twelve month period, programs must be designed for a five year period. Applicants that receive capacity building funds may use up to 50 percent of the Federal funding provided for the purpose of making sub-grants to small and emerging MDOs.
