The mission of the SBA is to aid, counsel, assist and promote the interests of small businesses by providing financial, procurement and business development assistance and advocating on their behalf within the government.  All SBA programs are extended to the public on a non-discriminatory basis.  Reasonable arrangements for persons with disabilities will be made, if requested in advance.
