I just found out yesterday that in the Governor's May revise of the budget, the SBDCs were given $2 million. It will be from the general fund so that means the SBA will match this amount.
We are watching closely to make sure this money does not get shifted to a special fund jeopardizing the match. Hats off to Barbara Vohryzek, the Small Business Advocate and Panorea Avdis in the Governor’s office for making this happen.
Small Business California has been working for a while to get additional funding for California SBDCs.
