Opportunities for Small Businesses

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and BusinessUSA are collaborating to improve the flow of information about contract opportunities from federal grantees to businesses looking for opportunity. The businesses also receive information about supports and assistance that can help them qualify to bid opportunities and to grow. Simple online tools provided by BusinessUSA make it faster and easier for project owners and contractors to secure the resources and capacity they need.

Using the BusinessUSA website and mobile application provide a "no wrong door" approach for small businesses and exporters to quickly connect to relevant services and information, regardless of where the information is located or which federal agency's website, call center, or office can help. Bid opportunities posted by federal grantees will be available for public search at www.usa.gov.

By downloading the Google Android or Apple iOS mobile application, you can also receive:

  • Daily push notifications of bid opportunities meeting filter criteria such as location, size, trades required, whether HUD Section 3 requirements apply, and other specifics.
  • Information on local training events, Federal Register notices, and business news in the same push notification.
