“Whether you’re a small business owner or representative for a nonprofit or municipality, this free expo is designed to provide you with tips and tools to help you succeed,” said Broun.  “It is a great way to network with state and federal representatives and learn valuable information for your business or project.”

About 20 representatives from various state and federal agencies will be on hand to speak with business owners.

Among the agency representatives that will be there Wednesday include, Georgia Department of Community Affairs Housing Finance Division,   Georgia Emergency Management Agency,   Georgia Student Finance Commission, Grants.gov, U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development, and the U.S. Small Business Administration.
