    Webinar

    The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will shortly launch the Community Navigator Pilot Program to strengthen outreach to underserved businesses. While a tremendous opportunity to provide the critical technical assistance needed by small businesses, oversight from the SBA’s Office of Entrepreneurial Development and your assigned District Program Officers will likely be robust and on-going. To prepare your organization from the start, please join us for a one-hour information session where we will discuss:

    • Overview of the Community Navigator Pilot Program and the application process
    • Required documentation to support your application (i.e., Partner Organization Commitment Letter, Funding Distribution Agreement, Cost Policy Statement, and Conflicts of Interest Policy)
    • Historical pitfalls related to receiving federal grants and how to avoid them
    • Best practices for Community Navigators to proactively avoiding these pitfalls
    • Best practices to implement a uniform compliance program across your spokes
