SBA 8(a) Application

SBA Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program and SBA Hubzone

The federal government’s goal is to award at least 5% of all federal contracting dollars to women-owned small businesses each year! The WOSB has incurred changes to their regulations that will make it easier for qualified small businesses to participate in the WOSB Federal Contracting Program. The HUBZone program fuels small business growth in historically underutilized business zones with a goal of awarding at least 3% of federal contract dollars to HUBZone-certified companies each year.
