Prince George’s Proud: An Update From County Executive Alsobrooks

Dear Prince Georgians:

This week, we are excited to join the nation in recognizing National Small Business Week! Every year since 1963, the United States has celebrated National Small Business Week to recognize the significant contributions of entrepreneurs and small businesses and to highlight the various programs and services available through the U.S. Small Business Administration and other government agencies.

Prince George’s County continues to be the economic engine of the Washington Metropolitan region and the State of Maryland, and we know that small businesses are the backbone of our local economy. It is important for us to support our entrepreneurs and small businesses, and that is why we are excited to officially proclaim this week as Small Business Week in Prince George’s County.

We are continuing to support small businesses in the County with the launch of new programs and initiatives through various County government agencies, including the Economic Development Corporation, Office of Central Services, and Department of Permitting, Inspections, and Enforcement, and FSC First. During this administration, each of these agencies have implemented unique and creative programs that make it easier for entrepreneurs and small businesses to engage with us and do business here in the County. We encourage business owners to visit their websites to learn more about the various programs and initiatives we have available.

Together, we are working to ensure that local businesses can open, grow, and thrive successfully in our County, because when we create opportunities for entrepreneurs and small businesses, we are creating local jobs for residents and supporting the continued growth and development of the surrounding communities.

We are proud to support our local entrepreneurs and small businesses during Small Business Week and encourage Prince Georgians to join us in supporting them this week and throughout the year.

Yours in service,

Angela Alsobrooks
Prince George’s County Executive
