The Department of Development Services’ Small Business Project Management (SBPM) Program has been supporting small businesses in their commercial real estate process.

In October 2023, 37 small business owners received a certificate of occupancy/written authorization to ‘Open for Business’ through the SBPM program.

This year, from January to October, 285 small business owners have started their businesses with the help of the SBPM program.

Mandi Spina, Director, Department of Development Services, emphasized the importance of understanding building regulations and terminology before signing a lease and offered the SBPM team’s expertise to assist small business owners in setting up their businesses for success, early on in the process.

Over 2,093 small business owners and entrepreneurs have received services since the SBPM program first launched in October 2018.
