Minority SDB 8(a) MBE Status
Federal legislation has created a group designated minority small disadvantaged business that is afforded exclusive contract preferences. Minority disadvantage are among poorest and most under-employed groups in America. U.S. Government has taken a number of steps to help promote self-sufficiency in this population. One of its most successful initiatives has been including these Minority Disadvantaged American groups in the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) program as “socially and economically disadvantaged”
