SBA Director Celebrates Black History Month with Construction Site Tour of Firm’s Latest Project, Talks Small Biz Access to Federal Contract Dollars through SBA’s HubZone Program

Dover, Del. – In recognition of Black History Month, U.S. Small Business Administration Delaware District Director John Fleming will tour Delaware’s first African-American-woman-owned HUBZone firm, Mountain Consulting’s, worksite at Solid Rock Baptist Church in Dover, Del., Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 10:00 a.m. Fleming will highlight how Delaware small businesses, like Mountain Consulting, can grow their businesses with increased access to federal government contracting opportunities through SBA’s HUBZone Program. This event is open to the press. 

“Delaware’s newest addition to the HUBZone Program, Mountain Consulting, is a great example of the Program at work in our local community,” said Fleming. “The HUBZone Program revitalizes struggling business corridors, or “HUBZones,” by giving their small businesses more access to federal government contracting opportunities. Given that edge, businesses can grow, create jobs, and turn whole communities around. When small businesses, like Mountain Consulting, are a success, we see more projects like Mountain’s work on the community center being erected at Solid Rock Baptist Church, and that makes Delaware a better place for all of us.”
