Small Business Assistance

Shop Local!

Small businesses are essential to a community, and it is a sad reality that many do not survive their first few years of operation. It is our mission to ensure that Carroll County is a place where citizens can shop locally for all of their needs and small business owners can pursue their dreams for their business.

We have many resources available, but many of them we have combined into this convenient, comprehensive guide booklet: 

"Planning Guide for Starting Your Business" (pdf)
