WASHINGTON, DC—The  US Small Business Administration (SBA) announced that nonprofit organizations, state and local agencies, and institutions of higher learning are eligible to compete for funding of up to $300,000 to deliver entrepreneurship training to women service members, women veterans, and women military spouses.

Up to six awardees will receive a total of $300,000 in grants administered by SBA’s Office of Veterans Business Development to participate in the Women Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Program. The funds will be used to cover the costs of educating women service members and veterans, as well as women military spouses who are interested in starting or currently own a small business.

“Women veteran entrepreneurs have contributed in a major way to the growth of the US economy, bringing in $10 billion in receipts over a five-year period,” said Larry Stubblefield, Associate Administrator for SBA’s Office of Veterans Business Development.  “The SBA is committed to supporting women veterans with the training and resources they need to start, grow or expand a small business.”

Eligible organizations submit applications for the Women Veteran Entrepreneurship Training Program funding opportunity through Grants.gov.  Applications not submitted via Grants.gov will not be evaluated. The submission deadline is Thursday, March 19 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
