SBA Certification Programs Could Mean BIG Business

There's a SBA certification program that could give your business a big jump in snagging federal government contracts -- and we can help you take advantage of it. The 8(a) Business Development Program, HUBZone and Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Contracting Programs are SBA’s certification programs. If you’re a small business owner interested in making the federal government one of your next customers, you can benefit greatly from obtaining these certifications.

Parking Instructions: Take Troost and turn east on 47th Street Terrace and go behind the building. There you will find a parking lot behind and slightly to the north of the building. You will see a sign that says "Parking for MO SBTDC, SCORE, MO PTAC, Heartland PTAC, MU Extension, SourceLink, No UMKC Permit Parking". You may park in this lot.


There are a few parking spots across the street from our entrance at the Discovery Center. These spots are rented by UMKC but are not marked. Please be respectful and park as far away from the Discovery Center’s front door as possible. Then walk across Troost to our front entrance.
