About the Navigator Program:
The SCEDD Community Navigator Pilot Program (CNPP) provides access to training, counseling, and financial capital – at no cost – to underserved small businesses via its targeted network of direct service providers. SCEDD is the “hub” of the program working with its “spokes,” a model inspired by similar successful efforts in the healthcare field. All organizations are considered Navigators whose role is to connect entrepreneurs to services within the program or other relevant resources in the regional network.
This two-year U.S. Small Business Administration grant was developed in response to small business needs which traditional offerings struggled to meet during the COVID-19 pandemic.
No Cost Services include access to technical assistance,
coaching & consulting in:
-Financial Services and Access to Capital
-Online platform optimization
-Business & Marketing Plans
-Customized Training to Meet your Specific Needs
Some 20.7% of the more than 7.9 million small establishments in the U.S. are in counties
without any type of U.S. Small Business Administration service center.
