The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), through its Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE), established specific programs to help Veterans start a business and become qualified as a Veteran-Owned, or a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business, which will enable qualified business owners to be eligible for federal set-asides.
The SBA’s Office of Veterans Business Development's mission is to maximize the availability, applicability and usability of all administration small business programs for Veterans, Service-Disabled Veterans, Reserve Component Members, and their Dependents or Survivors.
Their programs include:
- Boots to Business
- Boots to Business Reboot
- Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC)
- Veteran Institute for Procurement (VIP)
- Military Spouses
- Veteran Owned Small Business Growth Training Program
