Welcome to the SBAC

We believe the success of small businesses is a critical component of local communities and the nation’s economy. The SBAC has spent the last decade alongside small business owners fighting for reasonable policies that foster a healthier small business environment - economically, socially, and culturally.

The SBAC’s non-partisan approach continues to shape local, state, and federal small business legislation.

Advocacy Matters

The SBAC is laser focused on improving the small business environment through nonpartisan advocacy and grassroots engagement. View our full list of advocacy initiatives here.

SBAC Empower

SBAC Empower was founded in 2016 as a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit business and community education organization. SBAC Empower focuses on areas with fewer resources and funding and works alongside the SBAC to build these communities through mentorship, education, and advocacy initiatives. Some of the communities we have helped include Greater Englewood, North Lawndale, South Shore, Cook County Jail, Logan Square, Greater Roseland, Woodlawn, and more.
