Micro, minority and women-owned businesses are the source of growth and vibrancy in our downtowns, town centers and neighborhood districts.  Access to capital can often determine if businesses can make it through reduced revenues during the pandemic.  Micro, minority and women-owned businesses often face greater challenges securing capital.  We’ll discuss the overall and capital needs of small businesses, including restauranteurs, retailers and service providers, and strategies communities are using to address and support the wide range of small business needs, particularly minority and women-owned businesses.
