CCD Business Development Corporation (CCD) Awarded Judith Ann Mogan Foundation Grant

Roseburg, Oregon – The Judith Ann Mogan Foundation awarded CCD Business Development Corporation a Technical Assistance Grant for Coastal Small Businesses. This grant will provide free technical assistance to business owners or aspiring entrepreneurs located in Coos, Curry, and Douglas counties. The project will focus on assistance to businesses as they navigate the current COVID crisis through response and recovery. CCD will provide technical assistance in identifying resources for the businesses and assist in completing funding applications, long and short-term strategic planning, and financial literacy.

Project impact will be determined through an intake checklist, exit interview, and periodic follow-ups.

Our goal for the program will be to provide technical assistance to a minimum of 20 small businesses, utilizing no more than $2,500 in funding to provide the necessary focused technical assistance each client may require.

The program definition of small business is any privately owned corporation, partnership, limited liability company, or sole proprietorship which has fewer than 50 employees and less than $1m in annual revenue.

CCD will work with other economic development entities in the area, such as the Umpqua Economic Development Partnership, South Coast Development Council, local Small Business Development Centers, and our local Workforce Investment Board. All entities focus on business retention and expansion.

The result of the grant funded program will be the region’s ability to retain small businesses affected by the COVID crisis that otherwise may not have survived. Small business is the backbone of the economy, so any business saved will have a positive effect on the long-term viability of the region.

How to apply
