Small Business Administration (SBA): The SBA has developed many small business loan and assistance programs as well as a network of resources and partnerships with other public and private organizations that offer special outreach efforts and initiatives to aid and inform small businesses. The SBA's programs and services assist in almost every aspect of starting a business - from developing a business plan to obtaining financing and marketing products. Two SBA District offices cover Idaho, one in Boise serving southern Idaho and one in Spokane serving north Idaho. More information can be found at The Homepage for the SBA office in Boise, ID.
