SIG TARP Small Business Awareness Act of 2009 - Amends the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (EESA) to direct the Special Inspector General (SIG) for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) to examine how smaller financial institutions are being affected by: (1) expenditures under TARP (especially the adequacy of financial assistance); (2) the considerations and determinations of the Secretary of the Treasury (Secretary) and the regulators of such smaller financial institutions regarding capital adequacy and troubled assets; and (3) the effects that TARP financial assistance has had upon small businesses, including by type and by region.

Requires such reports to include information on: (1) the levels of inclusion and utilization of women, minorities, and women- and minority-owned businesses; (2) the type of such contracts or solicitations, their dollar amounts, and the total number of them; and (5) any other activities to increase the participation of women, minorities, and women- and minority-owned businesses, including recommendations.
