A coalition of community-based small business leaders and organizations invite your team of small business consultants and technical assistance providers to join us for a Train-the-Trainer and learn about the Southern Opportunity and Resilience (SOAR) Fund. SOAR is a new program built to support small businesses in the South and Southeast as they adapt, reopen safely, and recover from COVID-19.

Training will include:
-Overview of the program: goals, roles and participation
