Named for Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act, this program was created to help small and disadvantaged businesses compete in the marketplace. It also helps these companies gain access to federal and private procurement markets.

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will conduct a FREE seminar to explain the 8(a) Business Development and the Federal HUBZone Program eligibility for small businesses seeking federal government contracts. The 8(a) Business Development Program provides business assistance for small disadvantaged businesses compete in the market place.
