Contract Opportunities
SBTC assists its clients to identify and develop procurement pipelines by closely monitoring local and federal contracting activities and regularly meeting with officials at various local and federal agencies.

Teaming Arrangements
SBTC facilitates teaming by maintaining a comprehensive database of small businesses with extensive experience in private and public contracting by hosting and attending networking events and partnering with small business resource organizations.

Capture Management
SBTC provides resources needed by newly formed teams to respond to Requests For Proposals and submit proposals with a high probability of winning based on cost efficiency, past performance, and areas of expertise. Our capture piece includes ongoing and long-term support, strategic planning, executive coaching, leadership development and referrals to other NCRC Business Centers, when needed.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
