subsidized Technical assistance

Our TA teaches POC entrepreneurs, artists, and leaders how to raise funds, manage their finances, recruit and develop board-level leaders, and build and market their programs.

Since 2016, GAP has provided subsidized access to high-quality technical assistance services for people of color (POC) led nonprofits and social enterprises in the creative economy that serve 51% or more POC, and operate with a budget under $2 million. While ABC’s physical programming takes place at our office in New York’s 14th Congressional District, the bulk of our services can be performed remotely, and we are able to serve M/WBEs across the United States.

Empire State Development Program

In partnership with Empire State Development, we are aiming to provide support and access to small business recovery funding as a technical support provider.

Empire State Development, a state government agency focusing on economic development in New York, is providing a grant that can support small businesses in receiving from $5,000 to $50,000 in funding for your business. We can help you apply for funding and answer any questions you may have for free.

You can learn more about the New York State COVID-19 Pandemic Small Business Recovery Grant Program on their website, or email to learn more. If you are interested in applying for this program, please fill out this intake form or email us for more information.

You keep saying ‘Technical Assistance’. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Okay then! Who qualifies for subsidized technical assistance?
Can I still access services if I do not qualify for subsidies?
