The Rhode Island Foundation will host “Make It Happen RI” on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7 and 8. The event is designed to identify specific plans, along with the path to implement them, that in the end will help to create economic activity in the state that supplements what the private sector is doing currently.
i would like to see money become avaiable for small business to grow and add jobs to the ri economy and add to the tax base to grow the ri economy. Small grants or loans at low intrest would be welcome however i do not think small business is looking for a hand out ,that would help the older or most needy rhode islanders who truly need help. The truly needy should get help with the basics food clothing heat ect. That is my opinion!
