LGBT-Owned Businesses

LGBT inclusion and outreach

SBA's Network for LGBT Businesses aims to bring focus on economic empowerment in the LGBT business community by providing access to the SBA's programs and services.

Business owners can use our local assistance tool to find nearby offices and resources. There, you can get counseling on whether our 8(a) Business Development Program is right for you.

The SBA conducts outreach to be more inclusive of LGBT business owners, and our staff welcomes and recognizes the importance of greater inclusion at all levels and in all communities.

A number of District Offices have a strategic alliance with the LGBT business community.
