The SBA South Florida District is hosting a Drive 8(a) recruitment events during the month of July to help entrepreneurs understand how to sell their goods and services to the federal government.
Each year the federal government’s goal is to award at least five percent of all federal contracting dollars to small disadvantaged businesses through the SBA 8(a) Business Development Program. If accepted into the SBA’s 8(a) program, these social and economically disadvantaged businesses will receive nine years of business development assistance and will also be able to compete for federal contracting dollars by selling their goods and services to the federal government.
Drive 8(a) Recruitment events are used to educate potential applicants on the SBA’s 8(a) Business Development Program. During these events, experts from the SBA will share information on its 8a Federal Contracting Program, what it takes to qualify and eligibility requirements.
