Decatur on Tuesday became the first north Alabama city to sign a strategic alliance memorandum with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

Mayor Tab Bowling and SBA District Director Tom Todt signed the memorandum at the Decatur-Morgan County Entrepreneurial Center.

The agreement gives the city’s small businesses access through the federal agency to information about the available financial help, free mentoring and education in business management through the E-center.

The SBA also connects the E-center with resource partners like the Small Business Development Centers, SCORE and the Women’s Business Centers. Clients will be able to attend SBA-sponsored events and training.
