Basics of the Small Business Administration Grants

Small Business

There are several minority business certification programs available that help small business companies to get ahead. Recognizing the potential of budding entrepreneurs the US federal government has declared these certification programs to help them compete with the giant industries those are reining the federal market for the past several years. 8A Certification is one such small business development program that gives entre to the federal market where the small companies get huge exposure and business opportunity. This program is mainly aimed at the improvement of social and economical standard of the minority groups.

Apart from the people belonging to the minority group, women can also opt for the program as in business market the women entrepreneurs are always considered as the minority regardless of their racial status. Not only 8A Certification but SDVOSB certification is another type of minority business certification program that supports and encourage the business ventures owned and operated by the service incapable veterans. People who were once into the active US military and have lost their job due to service related accident are eligible to opt for the program. SDVOSB stands for Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. It is said that obtaining this certification is easier compared to other types of certifications.

Small Business Administration (SBA) conducts the program and there is a set of rules and regulations every applicant has to follow in order to be eligible for the grant. With 8A Certification a small business company can opt for the essential business resources which would not be that easy otherwise. Neither SDVOSB nor the 8A Certification program directly fund the small business companies, instead, they help with every essential resource needed to get a small business established to the federal market. The certifications are therefore the other name of federal recognition with which you can smoothen your way to success.

So, how to opt for the programs! To the very first place it is essential to get aware of the specific program you are opting for. Only being a service incapable individual or a woman or simply a member of the minority group you should not expect to get the grant ready for your venture. The eligibility criteria differ with the type of programs but the basic factors are almost same. These are, you have to be a US citizen, your business must be a small business as per SBA standard, you must come up with the best value product or service and you must have a clear legal standing etc. There is no certain parameter to measure the level of your physical incapability in case you are opting for the SDVOSB certification program. So, here you have to rate your disability status from 0 to 100% at your own.

For 8a Certification you must prove your status, the social and economical challenges that you are facing, on papers for which your business deserve the grant. In fact, even after obtaining the grants a small business company needs to come up with a comprehensive business plan in order to convince the Contracting Officers. So, it is advisable that you hire a professional business consultant to make the process faster and simpler.
