Funded in part through a grant with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
The World Trade Center Arkansas secures funding for Arkansas companies through the State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) Grant provided by the United States Small Business Administration. We then award it to eligible Arkansas small businesses to fund export initiatives such as trade shows and exhibitions, inbound and outbound trade missions, consulting, website translations, marketing media, and other export initiatives. The testimonials below illustrate the effectiveness of the STEP Grant. For more information on applying for funds, contact Trish Watkins, our STEP Grant director.
