Federal Government Help

Federal government help other than export assistance

Government Sources

Federal Small Business Agencies are listed first, followed by the state Small Business Development Centers listings. State specialty food associations have a separate listing in the Resources section.

Code of Federal Regulations
The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) con­tains the specific laws governing labels and ingredient statements for food products. Copies of the appropriate chapters may be purchased from your local government printing office.

Website: sba.gov

The SBA provides business counseling and has a government-guaranteed loan program for small businesses. You can only qualify for such loans if you have been refused by your local bank. Don’t hold your breath. Very few food entrepreneurs are able to access these funds. Ask for the address of the regional office nearest you.

Small Business Development Centers (SBDC)
Website: sbaonline.sba.gov/sbdc/

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) administers the Small Business Development Center Program to provide management assistance to current and prospective small business owners. SBDCs offer one-stop assistance to small businesses by providing a wide variety of information and guidance at centrally located branch locations.

Not all states have a listing for a specialty food association. Please check with that state’s Department of Agriculture for guidance.
