Proclamation
DESIGNATING THE WEEK OF MAY 1 - 7, 2022
NATIONAL SMALL BUSINESS WEEK

WHEREAS, America's progress has been driven by pioneers who think big, take risks and work hard; and

WHEREAS, from the storefront shops that anchor our downtown areas to the high-tech startups that keep America on the cutting edge, small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the cornerstone of our nation's promise; and

WHEREAS, small business owners and downtown businesses have energy and a passion for what they do, when we support small business, jobs are created and local communities preserve their unique culture; and

WHEREAS, when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, it posed a historic challenge to small businesses from big cities, small towns, rural enclaves, and Tribal communities; small business owners and workers demonstrated remarkable courage and resilience; and

WHEREAS, the President of the United States has proclaimed National Small Business Week every year since 1963 to highlight the programs and services available to entrepreneurs through the U.S. Small Business Administration and other agencies.
