The SBA’s Santa Ana District Office is responsible for the delivery of SBA's programs and services to Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
We take pride in providing excellent customer service in person, on the phone and via email.
We do three things very well at the Santa Ana District Office- Inform, Educate, and Connect. We enjoy connecting you to the resources you need to start, grow and succeed!
Our office is located in downtown Santa Ana across from the Old Orange County Courthouse. Contact us to speak with a representative about what resources are available for you to start or grow your business.
