What is a Women-Owned Small Business Certification? 

To help provide a level playing field for women business owners, local, state and federal governments limit competition for certain grants and contracts to businesses that are certified as Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB).

Specifically, contracts are for specific industries where WOSBs are underrepresented. Some contracts are restricted further to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs), which is a subset of the WOSB program.  Click here for eligible industries

Joining the WOSB Federal Contracting Program makes a business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program. Firms can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs they qualify for.
