Contact Your Regional Advocate

The relationship between America's small businesses and the Chief Counsel for Advocacy is strengthened by regional advocates located in SBA's ten regions. They are the Chief Counsel's direct link to small business owners, state and local government bodies, and organizations that support the interests of small entities. The regional advocates help identify regulatory concerns of small business by monitoring the impact of federal and state policies at the grassroots level. Their work goes far to develop programs and policies that encourage fair regulatory treatment of small business and help ensure their future growth and prosperity.
