The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is charged with administering the federal government's minority certification program. There are two programs; both require that the majority owner of the business be both socially and economically disadvantaged.
Many quasi-government and large business organizations in the area have procurement programs or guidelines to do business with them. Select the one(s) that best fit your service or product.
