Pursuant to that grant, America’s SBDC, in partnership with the International Business Innovation Association (InBIA), the Regional Center for the Promotion of Small Business in Central America (CENPROMYPE) and the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), intends to issue 10 sub-grant awards in amounts not to exceed $52,500 in FY 2017.
