The U.S. Small Business Administration

Contributing Partner


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 business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation. We recognize that small business is critical to our economic recovery and strength, to building America's future, and to 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, the bottom line mission remains the same. The SBA helps Americans start, build and grow businesses. Through an extensive network of field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations, SBA delivers its services to people throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, the U. S. Virgin Islands and Guam.

SBA Strategic Plan Fiscal Years 2014-2018

Every four years, SBA releases a strategy document for the current and upcoming years.  The FY2014-2018 Strategic Plan contains only slight modifications to the FY2011-2016 Strategic Plan.  This document chiefly refines the language of existing strategic objectives and strategies while adding two new strategic objectives concerning exports and supply chains, respectively.  This Strategic Plan provides a framework that will strengthen, streamline, and simplify SBA’s programs while leveraging partnerships across the government and private sector to maximize the tools small business owners and entrepreneurs need to strengthen our economy, drive American innovation, and increase our global competitiveness. The SBA will have three overarching goals for the next five years: (1) Grow businesses and create jobs; (2) Serve as the voice for small business; and, (3) Build an Agency that meets the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s small businesses.  Each goal contains objectives which are directly tied to performance both at the individual level and Agency‐wide.

Emergencies can strike at any time! It’s important to have a plan for you and your family to follow in the event of a natural disaster, disease outbreak or other dangerous situation. When making your plan, keep in mind that your family members may not all be in the same location and cell phones may be out of service.

Discuss your family’s plan and keep a copy of it at home and work so it’s easily accessible in the event of an emergency. This week, make an emergency go bag with the supplies listed on http://www.ready.gov/america/_downloads/checklist.pdf
