Can a disadvantaged individual or firm have ownership in more than one 8(a) Participant?

Answer: 

Yes. However, one or more disadvantaged individuals determined to be disadvantaged for purposes of qualifying one Participant, their immediate family members, and the Participant itself, may not hold in aggregate, more than 20% equity in any other single 8(a) firm.
