What is the Community Navigator Program?

The Pierce County Community Navigator program is a partnership of Pierce County's Economic Development Department and seven community organizations to reach underserved small business owners in Pierce County, particularly those owned by BIPOC, women, veterans and people in rural communities. The Navigator outreach team meets with businesses in the communities they serve and assists them with access to business resources. The program is funded by $2.5 million of American Rescue Plan Act funding.
