Last week, we held an introductory session of CAMEO’s new Behavioral Science in TA program, which is funded by the SBA PRIME Grant. In partnership with Silver Lining Action Plan (SLAP), this program aims to increase participants’ ability to serve their clients by applying behavioral science to business technical assistance. If you missed the session, you can access the recording and slide deck in CAMEO Academy.

The RFP to join the Behavioral Science in TA/SLAP Cohort is due on Friday, October 27, 2023 by EOD. Please fill out this form to apply for the cohort.

Federal and State Actions against Junk Fees

Last week, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed a new rule that would ban businesses from charging hidden and misleading fees and require them to disclose their full prices upfront.

Meanwhile, on Saturday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed SB 666 (introduced by Sen. Min and co-sponsored by CAMEO and CFC), which prevents financing companies from charging exorbitant fees in connection with a commercial financing transaction with a small business.
