Where can I go for SBA assistance?
The U.S. Small Business Administration has offices in nearly every major city in the country. The SBA operates the toll-free Answer Desk at 1-800-8-ASK-SBA (1- 800-827-5722) to give callers direct referral to appropriate sources of information. Sponsored by the SBA are a variety of counseling, training, and information services, including the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE), Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs), and Women's Business Centers (WBCs). In addition, procurement center representatives can be found at each major military installation. More than 2,700 chambers of commerce are located throughout the country to provide additional assistance.
