As of July 15, the certification process for Women-Owned Small Businesses and Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses has changed. Updated regulations make it easier for qualified small businesses to participate in the Women-Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program by improving the customer experience. At the same time, SBA is strengthening oversight and maintaining the integrity of the certification process.

Learn more about this program and how you can take advantage of this opportunity in this one-hour informative session.

Nancy N. Alvarez, Supervisor Business Opportunity Specialist with the SBA Dallas/Fort Worth District Office will facilitate the workshop and will be available to answer specific questions on the certification eligibility and process.
