Connect to Financial Assistance

Financial Assistance

DSLBD works to connect the Certified Business Enterprise (CBE), local and small business community with access to capital opportunities at every stage of the business life cycle. We can help link your business with capital providers – federal grants, banks, and others that will build your business capacity.

Funding can be used for many business purposes, including, but not limited to:

  • start-up costs
  • working capital
  • business procurement
  • franchise fees
  • equipment
  • inventory
