SBA Loans - for Women, Minorities, Veterans and Disadvantaged Business Owners
Each year, hundreds of thousands of small business owners around the country apply for small business loans. For a portion of these entrepreneurs, specifically women business owners, minorities in business, service disabled veteran business owners, and other disadvantaged business people, specific government loans are available. Most popularly, the SBA Microloan, SBA 504, and SBA 7a loans provide funding to socially and economically disadvantaged business owners. Unfortunately, these application processes are long, complicated, and highly selective. Moreover, SBA loans, like all others, must eventually be repaid.
There are also government grants for minority businesses, woman owned businesses, service disabled veterans in business, and other disadvantaged persons who need financial assistance. Like government loans however, they are highly competitive, and are usually only awarded once.
Section 8a of the Small Business Act however, provides continual access for women, minorities, service disabled veterans, and other disadvantaged business people to government contracts at no cost to them.
The simple truth of applying for an 8a certification is that it is an extremely intense process with little documentation support. Federal buyers prefer 8a contractors by and large for a few key reasons:
- They're faster: 8a contracts take on average 1/10 the time to be awarded than others.
- Less red tape: Hiring an 8a contractor requires less paperwork than others.
- More options: Having an 8a contractor list allows buyers to choose who they want, rather than being told to hire a "selected contractor."
- Less headaches: More than the hassle of soliciting bids from independent contractors, there is often times protest from losing bidders.
Owners of small minority businesses understand these facts, and want to take advantage of the program that was designed to help them. Unfortunately, the number of applications for 8a certification significantly outweighs the number of approvals, making 8a certification a complex process that needs expert support. Submitting an eligible and complete application, as a result, is extremely important.
