Small Business Administration: Service Disabled Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Program
The Small Business Administration (SBA) will fund projects to market and deliver an existing service-disabled veteran entrepreneurial training program (SDVETP) to veterans, service-disabled veterans, and Reserve Component members who intend to start new businesses or expand/diversify existing small businesses.
It is expected that the awardees will work closely with SBA resource partners, particularly the Veterans Business Outreach Centers (VBOCs) and all other SBA resource partners in leveraging resources when marketing SDVETP and to connect program beneficiaries with SBA technical assistance resources. Applicants will also demonstrate the capability to establish partnerships with veteran service organizations, employment services, and community-based organizations that service the training needs of veterans by providing copies of partnership agreements and/or letters or emails of support from, the above-listed types of organizations.
Amount: Approximately $300,000 is available to fund up to six awards ranging from $50,000-$150,000 for a three-year period of performance.
Eligibility: An applicant must:
- Be an eligible entity: non-profit organization, local or state agency, or an institution of higher learning
- Demonstrate a history of providing quality entrepreneurship and/or business management training to aspiring or existing veterans, service-disabled veteran small business owners and Reserve Component members that results in new business starts, business expansions or diversifications, as well as jobs created and/or retained
