How do I apply to the 8(a) BD program?

Contacting the local SBA district office serving your area is the first step. An SBA representative will answer general questions over the telephone. Some district offices may also have 8(a) orientation workshops to provide additional information regarding the eligibility requirements and to review various SBA forms.
