DeKalb County
Small Business Micro-Enterprise Programs

The DeKalb County Community Development Department is committed to helping existing small business enterprises and entrepreneurs succeed. Growing a business from the ground up and/or expanding an existing business requires business management skills, planning, strategy, access to capital, contracts/sales and passion. We can help you with the first five but the last one is up to you. Our accelerator programs provides a combination of engaging interactive sessions with individual coaching to transform you into a stronger and more efficient CEO.

Our partner in this endeavor is the Urban League of Greater Atlanta- an organization with decades of proven success in helping small businesses grow and thrive. If you are an existing business owner operating in DeKalb County OR your business is located outside of the county but you live in DeKalb County, our small business accelerator programs are great for you.


The DeKalb County Community Development Small Business Loan Program is designed to provide below market rate fixed asset financing to new and existing small businesses like yours who want to do business in DeKalb County. This program also establishes a platform for creating and retaining jobs for the County. As an engine for economic growth, the DeKalb County Community Development Department and its partner, Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs (ACE), are excited to provide small business financing opportunities to DeKalb County businesses. We are hopeful that the program will encourage enthusiasm and creativity in the marketplace and help open the door to an exciting and profitable future for DeKalb’s entrepreneurial community.
