Small Businesses

Small businesses are a cornerstone of Maryland’s economy, creating jobs and driving innovation. That's why Senator Van Hollen is fighting to make sure that small businesses can access the capital and credit they need to grow. He has also worked with Maryland's small businesses to identify contracting opportunities with the federal government and to leverage the fact that Maryland is home to numerous federal agencies. As a member of the Banking and Appropriations Committees, Senator Van Hollen is working to support the Small Business Administration and invest in programs like the Economic Development Administration and the Minority Small Business Development Agency that help entrepreneurs develop their businesses across our state.
