LGBTQ-owned businesses

SBA is proud to support the LGBTQ+ business community.


LGBTQ+ inclusion and outreach

SBA's Network for LGBTQ+ Businesses aims to bring focus on economic empowerment in the LGBTQ+ business community by providing access to the U.S. Small Business Administration's programs and services.

Business owners can use our local assistance tool to find nearby offices and resources. There, you can get counseling on whether our 8(a) Business Development Program is right for you.

The SBA conducts outreach to be more inclusive of LGBTQ+ business owners, and our staff welcomes and recognizes the importance of greater inclusion at all levels and in all communities.
