Qualifications, application process, and recent updates will be discussed. 8(a) Business Development Program The 8(a) Business Development Program is SBA’s effort to promote equal access for socially and economically disadvantaged individuals to participate in the federal marketplace. Established businesses that are both socially and economically disadvantaged can gain access to a unique direct award authority and set-aside requirements.
