Veteran Owned Small Business Registration (VETBIZ)

The government recognizes veteran entrepreneurship as an important aspect of veterans’ health and our societal well-being. The Veterans Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development Act of 1999 established initiatives to meet these needs and set standards for reserving a percentage of federal contract opportunities for veteran owned and service disabled veteran owned companies.

What’s at Stake

The government’s goal is 8% of all federal contracts be set-aside for veterans and service disabled veterans. This is roughly around $35 billion every year.

Divided evenly, that would be an annual income of $490,720 per year for every Veteran Owned Small Business and $789,806 for every Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.*
