An 8(a) firm is a small business that is owned and operated by socially and economically disadvantaged citizens and has been
accepted into the 8(a) Business Development Program. This program is administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA), the
United States agency charged with supporting the growth and development of small businesses. The 8(a) program is designed to
help disadvantaged entrepreneurs get government contracts and access the economic mainstream in America.
