Small Business Administration offers free workshop in Pittsburgh on HUBZone and Women-Owned programs

| Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, 12:21 p.m.

The Pittsburgh District Office of the Small Business Administration is offering a free hands-on workshop for people interested in the HUBZone or Women-Owned certification programs.

The office holds the workshop on the third Wednesday of every month, and the next two-hour session is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. Wednesday at 411 Seventh Ave., Suite 1450, Pittsburgh. Space is limited and registration is required.

Both programs allow small businesses to gain preferences in competing for some federal contracts. The HUBZone program is for small businesses operating in “historically underutilized business” zones, and the women-owned program is for small businesses where women own at least 51 percent of the business.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
