In This Must Know…

CA FY 2022-23 Budget Preview

2021 what a year! The state of California invested billions in small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic at levels the state has never done before. As Governor Gavin Newsom announced on Monday at his press conference on his proposed 2022-23 California state budget that the state is continuing its small business assistance by continuing existing programs at similar or increased levels as well as introducing a few new budget items.

Particularly of interest to many of our members is that the Governor mentioned “permanent support” for the Small Business Technical Assistance Expansion Program (SB-TAEP) with an increase in funding. Read what else is in the budget in our blog post California FY 2022-23 Budget Take One.
