First Thursdays with the SBA: SDVOSB/VOSB (Veteran Certifications)

February 2, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Grab your lunch and join us the first Thursday of each month to learn more about SBA programs and network with other small business owners.

Topic: Service Disable Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)

The federal government aims to award at least 3% of all federal contracting dollars to Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB) each year. Joining the SDVOSB program makes your business eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts. You can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs you qualify for.

Key Takeaways:

  • What is a SDVOSB?
  • Who is eligible for the program?
  • What to expect with the recent changes to the program?
