This morning while we were starting our Entrepreneurship Training Program session, Victor Parker, District Director, U.S. Small Business Administration of the Los Angeles District Office surprised us with a wonderful visit!
He was here to present a check of $150,000 to Pacific Asian Consortium in Employment (PACE) for being one of three 2016 SBA Prime Grant Awardees in Los Angeles, California.
“The PRIME Program provides a tremendous opportunity to strengthen and revitalize communities by training low-income and disadvantaged micro-entrepreneurs on how to start and grow their businesses,” said Parker.
The PRIME grants help qualified community-based organizations provide training to small businesses with five or fewer employees that are economically disadvantaged and businesses owned by low-income individuals. This is our 3rd year in receiving this amazing grant. We are proud and honored that PACE was chosen – we love the work we do and the community we serve. Thank you all for all your support!
