STEP Grant Programs

GEDA is proud to announce that it had been awarded the second year of grant funding of $227,445 for the State Trade and Export Promotion (STEP) Grant Program from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Grant No. SBAHQ-12-IT-0028.

STEP is managed at the national level by the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of International Trade to help continue in the development of Guam’s lead exporting industry and falls under President Obama’s National Export Initiative (NEI) which is to double exports over the next five years, an increase that will support two million new jobs in America ( ).

The program’s objectives are to increase the number of local small businesses that are exporting, and to increase the value of exports for those small businesses that are currently exporting.
