Small business owners and managers can apply to the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce for the Small Business Collection Program. The five-month program, now in its third year, has yielded excellent results for the 30 graduates from the past two years. The program aims to help business owners work through problems and stabilize and/or grow their businesses.
Current graduates have expanded their businesses, opened new locations and reached new levels of business. Participants do not have to be Chamber members and are available throughout Western Kentucky and Southern Illinois.
