Small businesses across the United States reaped a record $154.2 billion in federal contracts in fiscal 2021. That’s a lot of moolah for Main Street.
Of that amount, $237,957,568 flowed directly to West Virginia small businesses. Sounds like a hefty sum – and it is – until you consider the Mountain State’s share represents a paltry 0.16 percent slice of the federal pie.
West Virginians are leaving a lot of opportunity on the table.
