On October 28, 2021 SBA Administrator Casillas Guzman announced grantees for the Biden-Harris Administration’s Community Navigator Pilot Program, an American Rescue Plan initiative designed to reduce barriers that all small businesses, including those owned by disadvantaged groups such as veterans, women, and those from rural communities and communities of color, often face in accessing critical support. The Community Navigator Pilot Program will provide $100 million in funding to 51 organizations that will work with local groups to connect America’s entrepreneurs to SBA resources so they can recover and thrive. IVMF was the only Veteran Serving Organization selected but Veterans can receive services from any Grant Awardee.
