The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is working with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) to provide education and support to Veterans with disabilities interested in self-employment.
VA’s Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E) services entered into an agreement with SBA’s Office of Veterans Business Development in early December to provide self-employment guidance, assistance and on-the-job training to Veterans with disabilities.
“Our partnership with the Small Business Administration brings together the best of public and private business resources to help Veterans with disabilities start their business on a firm footing,” said VA Acting Secretary Robert Wilkie. “This program is available to Veterans who want to transition to self-employment and want the guidance and mentorship provided by SBA partners to increase their success.”
