Applying for the 8 (a) Program

Finding Opportunities and Marketing

 

Are you a local minority owned small business that’s interested in federal government contracting?

 

To help provide a level playing field for small businesses owned by socially and economically disadvantaged people or entities, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the 8(a) Business Development program.

Disadvantaged businesses in the 8(a) program can:

  • Compete for set-aside and sole-source contracts in the program
  • Get a Business Opportunity Specialist to help navigate federal contracting
  • Form joint ventures with established businesses through the SBA’s Mentor-Protégé Program
  • Receive management and technical assistance, including business training, counseling, marketing assistance, and high-level executive development

The JSU PTAC Program and the West Anniston Foundation are teaming up to present local small businesses with the foundational information they need to know if pursuing government contracts, especially as a minority-owned business.
