SmallGovCon Week in Review: August 22-26, 2022

Happy Friday, Readers. I hope this has been a productive week for you. We have been very busy here at SmallGovCon moving into the fall season. Living in a college town always brings a sense of energy and excitement as the students return for the fall semester.

The SBA made announcements this week about a new webinar series they are launching concerning the challenges of inflation on small businesses as well as a new program addressing cybersecurity infrastructure. You can read more about that, as well as other federal government news, in the articles we have included below. Have a great weekend!
