SBA: Office of Intergovernmental Affairs

The Office of Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA) serves as a liaison to elected and appointed officials of state, county, and local governments, the organizations that represent them, as well as to other federal agencies.  The office’s primary functions are to communicate information about SBA’s objectives, initiatives, policies, and programs to these stakeholders and to build partnerships that will facilitate opportunities for small business entrepreneurs.  IGA also works closely with SBA’s program, regional, and district offices to promote the agency’s initiatives and programs and strengthen stakeholder relationships.
