Find assistance as a vet, spouse, or dependent

One hundred and fifty years ago today, President Lincoln signed a law establishing the first federal veterans’ facility for disabled Civil War veterans. This facility gave root to the Department of Veterans Affairs’ assistance programs.

Today, the VA offers many benefits and services to eligible veterans and connects our military service men and women with resources across the country. Share this information with a veteran you know, or an organization that helps veterans.

Attend Vet Business Conference Nov 1

Veterans interested in starting a small business are invited to a small business conference from 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 1 at the White River Junction Veteran Center located at 118 Prospect Street, Suite 100, in White River, Vt.

State and federal official and local lenders will discuss ownership, financing and contracting. Each year the Small Business Administration hosts Veterans Small Business Week to assists veterans and their spouse with entrepreneurial training, counseling and access to capital.

“This is a great opportunity for any veteran interested in starting a new business and its free to attend,” said Chris Herriman, SBA Vermont District Office Veteran Business Officer.

Many veterans choose non-traditional employment after military life. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, American veterans own 2.5 million businesses, accounting for 9 percent of all businesses nationwide, and employ more than 5.7 million people. Veterans are 45 percent more likely to be self-employed than people with no military experience.

There are more than 7,000 veteran-owned businesses in Vermont and many of them are running companies far outside the scope of what they were doing while serving.

Join the conversation at #MyVetBiz to share veteran stories, encourage community members to highlight local veteran-owned businesses in their community, and show gratitude and support to veterans and their families.

To register, email chris.herriman@sba.gov or call 802-828-4422.
