Name:U.S. Small Business Administration
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) acts as a guarantor of small business loans and provides management and technical
assistance and contracting opportunities to small businesses. The Agency also provides disaster assistance through direct
loans in communities that have undergone catastrophes with the intention of rebuilding the devastated economy and community
simultaneously. Moreover, as the only federal government agency with “small business” in its name and our credibility with
entrepreneurs and small businesses throughout the country, SBA is often turned to for advice and guidance beyond our specific
program areas. Recognition of this reality and adapting our service offerings as an agency has been an essential component
of improving customer service across our agency.
