Grants available for Kansas small business owners

Many entrepreneurs in eastern Kansas looking for marketing help as they form an LLC will be able to take advantage of a government grant program that will cover much of the cost of workshops at the Miami County Economic Development Center, the Osawatomie Graphic reports.

The scholarships – part of a grant to the county from the U.S. Department of Agriculture – will cover 75 percent of the program’s costs. Officials told the paper that most small businesses in the area will qualify for the program, and that a few businesses have already shown significant interest.

To be eligible, companies must have less than $1 million in sales and employ 50 or fewer employees, the paper reports. The classes, which will cover topics such as social media, press releases and websites, will be held starting next month.

The program is just one of many resources for entrepreneurs in the state. WIBW-TV reports that the Kansas Small Business Environmental Assistance Program – which helps small business owners learn to comply with environmental regulations – was recently awarded the national 2010 Small Business Environmental Assistance Award.ADNFCR-3052-ID-19906095-ADNFCR
