Entrepreneurial Assistance: Opportunities Exist to Improve Programsäó» Collaboration, Data-Tracking, and Performance Management
William B. Shear (au)
Economic development programs that effectively provide assistance to entrepreneurs may help businesses develop and expand. This report focused on 52 economic development programs, with an estimated $2.0 billion in funding, at the Depts. of Commerce, Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Small Business Admin. (SBA), and U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) that support entrepreneurs. It discusses (1) the extent of overlap and fragmentation, the effects on entrepreneurs, and agenciesäó» actions to address them; and (2) the extent of tracked program information and whether these programs have met their performance goals and been evaluated. The report concludes that federal efforts to support entrepreneurs are fragmented, and all overlap with at least one other program in terms of the type of assistance they are authorized to offer, such as financial (grants and loans) and technical (training and counseling), and the type of entrepreneur they are authorized to serve. Some entrepreneurs struggle to navigate the fragmented programs that provide technical assistance. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
