The Veteran Small Business Certification (VetCert) Program, funded by the Small Business Administration (SBA) is now open. Veteran-owned businesses, including VOSBs and SDVOSBs can apply for funding. SBA Administrator Isabella Guzman recently granted a one-time, one-year extension to current Veteran small businesses already verified by the Veterans Administration Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE). Beginning Jan. 1, 2024, both Veteran and service-disabled Veteran small business owners will need to be certified to compete for federal contracting set-asides unless an application from a self-certified firm is pending an SBA decision.
