SBA 8(a) Certification Program
Did you know the Federal government is required by law to give preferential treatment to small disadvantaged companies?
What is the SBA 8(a) Certification Program?
In 2014, $34.7 billion in federal contracts was awarded to small disadvantaged businesses at an average of $5.2 million per firm.
To help these businesses thrive and compete, the US SBA created the 8(a) Business Development Program. This program is for small businesses that are majority owned by American citizens who are socially and economically disadvantaged because of their race, ethnicity or other issues in their background. These businesses must also demonstrate they have good chances for success.
