Government contracts

Government contracts

There are contracts you can win on the city, state and federal level.

Winning a government contract can help your business stay afloat. Federal, state and city agencies award billions in contracts each year to small businesses. Officials urge eligible small businesses to apply to keep a fair market.

One contract can provide substantial income. Check these resources regularly for the contract that’s right for you.
