The U.S. Small Business Administration is proposing to revise the regulations for the Small Business Investment Company (“SBIC”) program to significantly reduce barriers to program participation for new SBIC fund managers and funds investing in underserved communities and geographies, capital intensive investments, and technologies critical to national security and economic development. The proposed rule was placed on public inspection and made available in the Federal Register ( https://lnkd.in/eQRHv6df ) on Oct. 19, 2022.
