What They Are Reading in the States: SBA Launches Local Blitz Touting Opportunities for Small Businesses to Help Build the Future of America

WASHINGTON – Ahead of a newly announced proclamation by President Biden to celebrate American workers, products and services in recognition of Made in America Week, SBA officials and members of the small business community participated in a series of engagements for the SBA’s “Build America, Buy American Month of Action.” From op-eds and interviews in local media outlets to in-person and virtual events, SBA Regional Administrators touted the Biden-Harris Administration’s delivery on its commitments to America’s small businesses, entrepreneurs, and startups and the opportunities created for small manufacturers and contractors through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL).

As the federal agency dedicated to advancing the American dream of starting and growing a business, the SBA is uniquely positioned to create the environment to let our entrepreneurs do what they do best - power our nation’s economy, advance a vision of a future Made in America, and help them do business with the world’s largest buyer of goods and services, the U.S. government.

Working with sister agencies, like the Department of Transportation (DOT), the SBA is also helping to lower barriers of access to capital for small disadvantaged businesses  interested in pursuing the type of government contracting opportunities BIL will create.

Signed by President Biden on November 15, 2021, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (also known as BIL), delivers historic investments in our transportation, water, energy, and communications systems – to help build America’s next great economy with small businesses leading the way. Across the country, billions of dollars have been allocated in funding with projects already announced.
