2016 SBA Prime Grant Awardee – Pacific Asian Consortium in Employment (PACE)

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!
