Small Business Administration


The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) was created in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government to aid, counsel, assist, and protect the interests of small businesses; preserve free competitive enterprise; and maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation.

SBA recognizes that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength, building America's future, and helping the United States compete in today's global marketplace. Although SBA has grown and evolved in the years since it was established in 1953, its bottom-line mission remains the same: the SBA helps Americans start, build, and grow businesses.
