The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) helps Americans start, grow, and build resilient businesses. SBA was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns; preserve free competitive enterprise; and maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation. Since the agency was founded, SBA has expanded the help it provides. SBA's programs now include help with management, as well as financial and federal contract procurement. SBA provides specialized outreach to women, minorities, and armed forces veterans. SBA loans are available to victims of natural disasters. The agency also offers specialized advice and support in international trade. SBA was created to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the nation’s economy.
Recently, the City of Saginaw has established a business relationship with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). By connecting with SBA, this can and will provide more assistance and make available more resources to our local Saginaw businesses in the future.
