How Caucasian Women Can Prove Social Disadvantage for the 8(a) ProgramPosted: December 19, 2012
As I’ve written before, certifying your business with a special designation is a smart way to get your business in front of the agencies (prospective clients) who all need to set aside a certain percentage of business for these special categories.
Businesses owned by Caucasian women sometimes assume they won’t be eligible for the 8(a) category – the socially and economically disadvantaged – because they’re not a member of a presumed minority group.
As Todd Luttenegger and Mark Ryan of ez8a explain, it is possible for Caucasian women-owned businesses to be certified as an 8(a) business, provided they meet specific criteria and submit all the required information and evidence of their disadvantage.
They take you through the whole process in their resource, Caucasian Female 8(a) Application – ez8a Social Disadvantage Guidelines.
