Small Business Administration (SBA)

A federal government agency created in 1953 to “aid, counsel, assist and protect... the interests of small business concerns,” including real estate-related industries. It provides training and counseling and financial assistance through loans and guarantees. The SBA (www.sba.gov) also negotiates small business set-asides with federal agencies requiring outside goods and services, meaning that a certain predetermined percentage of those contracts will be awarded to small businesses.
