+ CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, June 13 - June 19, 2003 - 45 SBA to host variety of events during 50th anniversary The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) turns 50 this year, and in Washing- ton, D.C., and dozens of cities across the country, the SBA will spotlight the entre- preneurial heroes who have started and grown small businesses as it marks this an- niversary. In addition to honoring 50 years of small business success, the agency is looking to- ward the future. At 10 public forums start- ing, in October and ending in April 2004, citizens will discuss the needs of small businesses and what the SBA can do to bet- ter assist them. The forums will be de- signed to listen to and record what Ameri- can entrepreneurs find relevant. "The president and I recognize the vital role small businesses play in creating op- portunity for millions of Americans," said SBA Administrator Hector V. Barreto. "His small business agenda is designed to create an environment where entrepreneur- ship can flourish by providing small busi- nesses with the information they need to succeed, saving taxpayer dollars by ensur- ing open competition to government con- . ed. tracts, and tearing down regulatory barriers to job creation." National recognition of the agency's 50th anniversary kicks off, Aug. 1. at The Dwight D. Eisenhower Library and Muse- um in Abilene, Kan., where the signing of the Small Business Act by President Eisen- hower, July 30, 1953, will be commemorat- Continued on page 46 SBA announces small businesses loans available for FY03 The U.S. Small Business Ad- ministration (SBA) recently an- nounced that $1.4 billion in addi- tional loan authority will be made available for small business lend- ing for fiscal year 2003. As a re- suit, lending authority in the agency's primary business loan program, 7(a), will increase to al- most $11.0 billion. "Hundreds of small business owners and entrepreneurs looking to start a business will benefit from this new loan authority," said SBA administrator Hector V. Barreto. "The SBA is already un- derwriting a record number of loans in this, its 50th year, and this new loan authority will add to our capacity to help small business- es." The new loan authority will be made available by applying a new 7(a) econometric subsidy model to the STAR program for FY 2003. The STAR, or Supplemen- tal Terrorist Activity Relief, pro- gram, was established to assist small businesses affected by the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, and was in effect through January 11, 2003. From October 1, 2002 through January 11, 2003, $1.663 billion in STAR loans were made. CONTROL It's like having storm shutters with a view.
