Minority Business Assistance & Recovery
Small businesses, particularly minority-owned, were hit hard by the impacts of COVID-19, especially on aging commercial corridors. The free Sac IEDC’s American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) technical assistance program is structured to provide much-needed help to any small business located in the City of Sacramento and has assistance geared to help minorities facing additional hurdles to get back to business. The program offers webinars with experts on relevant topics for today’s business environment, including information on how to operate your business in a COVID-19 environment; how to create an online presence for your business to drive better sales; and 1:1 consulting assistance in a wide range of topics, including in-language options in Spanish, Russian, Ukrainian, Vietnamese, and others, as needed.

The City of Sacramento has been the inaugural financial supporter of the Sacramento Inclusive Economic Development Collaborative (Sac IEDC) and has continued to invest in this program for the past three years.
The Sac IEDC partners provide a deeper, more culturally, in-language small business support that has not existed for small business owners located in the City's aging commercial corridors.
