Promoting Health and Wealth with the San Mateo Healthy Business Project
Get Healthy SMC and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR) are promoting health by expanding the Legal Services for Entrepreneurs pilot project in San Mateo County. A vibrant small business ecosystem contributes to community health, and financial security for low-income entrepreneurs is critical for tackling local health and wealth disparities. LCCR will address both of these needs by providing legal services to low-income entrepreneurs and small business owners of color in priority communities and training local service providers on commercial leasing best practices. This project began as a pilot in North Fair Oaks and will now be offered countywide. Residents and referring organizations can request these services by contacting LCCR through email or their online application.
