The Arizona District Office of the Small Business Administration will host two evening workshops for northern Arizona area small businesses to discuss both the small business provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — the recently enacted federal stimulus legislation — and advice on managing a contracting economy for small businesses.
The first is in Flagstaff on April 22; the second will be in Show Low on April 28.
“The workshops are part of a series being conducted by SBA across the state to assist small-business owners with issues fundamental to their success,” states SBA District Director Robert Blaney. “Our goal is to educate Arizona small businesses about opportunities that will exist as a result of the new legislation, and provide information to assist them in coping with the increasing challenge of managing a business in a down economy.”
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act provided $730 million to SBA and created a comprehensive package of tax breaks, financial assistance and market enhancements designed to help foster entrepreneurship and job creation.
