Illinois Announces Back To Business Grant Program – SBAC Testifies at Joint Committee Hearing

Back to Business Grant Program

AUG 13th - The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity launched the Back to Business grant program for struggling small businesses on Wednesday.  On August 12th, the SBAC participated in a joint Illinois Senate hearing to learn more about the program. We explained how important it is for the program to be transparent and promptly provide funds to as many small businesses as possible. We appreciated the opportunity to engage with Senators and DCEO on this crucial grant program.

 

Please visit DCEO’s website to learn more about the program. We are glad to answer questions as well.  https://www2.illinois.gov/dceo/SmallBizAssistance/Pages/B2B.aspx

 

The SBAC will be closely watching how the program is implemented.
