By Staff | Aug 27, 2020

Are you a veteran small business owner? The U.S. Small Business Administration wants to offer support and access to resources.

Get started by participating in SBA Veterans Small Business Advisory Committee virtual public meetings next week via Microsoft Teams.

The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Interagency Task Force on Veterans Small Business Development (IATF) will meet on Sept. 2, and the Advisory Committee on Veterans Business Affairs (ACVBA) will hold its virtual public meeting on Sept. 3.

“Now more than ever, it is critical for our veteran small business advisory committees to discuss challenges faced by the veteran small business community and how we can expand the resources available to them,” said Larry Stubblefield, associate administrator for the Office of Veterans Business Development.

“We look forward to hosting our committee meetings virtually, supporting and advocating for this important and underserved population.”

For information on the meetings, visit www.sba.gov, e-mail veteransbusiness@sba.gov or call (202) 205-6773.

The ACVBA meeting will include updates on the Veteran Business Project, SBA’s veterans’ programs, women-owned small business federal contracting program and lessons learned from the Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program.

Take advantage of SBA programs to help empower you and your business.
