(MSRCD) are joined by a common mission: helping to start, maintain, and expand small businesses. The Parties will work together in the spirit of cooperation and open communication
s with the primary goal of meeting the needs of the small business community.
Mat-Su Resource Conservation & Development Council’s mission is to assist in creating jobs, expanding the local economy, conserving natural resources and enhancing the quality of life for the residents and institutions of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough.
Small businesses are the driving force of Alaska’s economy, representing more than 69,000 businesses (approximately 96 percent of all businesses in the state of Alaska).

The mission of the SBA is to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business by providing financial, contractual and business development assistance and advocating on their behalf within the government. SBA district offices deliver SBA programs and services to the public.
“Each Party has separate services and resources which, when delivered in coordination with each other, will provide maximum benefits to the small business communities served here in Alaska,” said Assistant Associate Administrator Calvin Goings. “The purpose of this Strategic Alliance Memorandum is to develop and foster mutual understanding and a working relationship between the SBA and the Mat-Su Resource Conservation & Development Council, Inc. in order to strengthen and expand small business development in the Mat-Su Borough.”
