About Us

About Our Office: 

The Pittsburgh SBA office is responsible for the delivery of SBA programs and services to 27 counties in western Pennsylvania.

Last year, the Pittsburgh District Office assisted hundreds of people through training, counseling and business-development programs.

The Pittsburgh SBA Office is committed to forming a closer partnership with lenders and with the community at large. Several agreements have been signed with companies and community organizations to increase lending and technical assistance to small businesses in the state of Pennsylvania.
