On Wednesday, October 28, 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Great Lakes Regional Administrator Rob Scott (2nd from right) made several stops in Milwaukee to visit businesses assisted by SBA economic relief programs and the SBA’s Program for Investment in Micro-entrepreneurs (PRIME) grants.

One of those entrepreneurs who has been helped by the grant is Jason Alston (2nd from left), owner of Heaven’s Table BBQ, who is currently working with the Northwest Side Community Development Corporation (NSCDC) to move his business to a new location on North Avenue.

The NWSCDC, headed by Executive Director Willie Smith (far left), is a first-time recipient of SBA’s PRIME grant funds and will use it to help city entrepreneurs boost their business skills. Also pictured (far right) is SBA’s Wisconsin district director Eric Ness.
