Disadvantaged and Minority Business Certification in South Carolina


In South Carolina there are several programs

designed to benefit those businesses owned and

controlled by “disadvantaged” individuals. The key to

obtaining certification or designation under all these

programs is a demonstration that a qualified individual

“owns” and “controls” the business. While those terms

certainly appear straightforward, there are pitfalls for

those businesses who do not understand the application

process, the applicable rules, and their purposes.
