What We Do

Advocacy is a voice for small business within the federal government, a watchdog for regulations, and a source of statistics. Advocacy advances the views and concerns of small business before Congress, the White House, the federal agencies, the federal courts and state policy makers.

We are responsible for educating the government on how small entities are affected by federal regulations.


We advocate for small businesses, by working with policymakers to bring regulatory flexibility at all levels.


We constantly perform research, examining how small businesses are contributing to the U.S. economy.


We publish data about small business activity, including economic data, covering growth, firm size, and more.


Our resources can help connect you with various Bureaus, Associations, and help you find Laws and Regulations.
