  • On February 5, 2015, the SBA issued proposed rules that would establish a government-wide mentor-protégé program for all small business types, including participants in the HUBZone, Women-Owned Small Business and Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business programs. These rules would implement provisions of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010 and the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013. If you are interested in commenting, the SBA has asked for comments to be filed by April 6, 2015.
