The Small Business Administration intends to award grants up to $150,000 to non-profit organizations, educational institutions and government agencies to implement entrepreneurship training programs to service-disabled veterans. In addition, $300,000 will be provided to six recipients to support developmental initiatives for veterans to assist them in establishing small business through the Service-Disabled Entrepreneurship Training Program, SBA said Monday.

Interested participants may submit their applications online through July 24. The agency is slated to conduct a conference call on Thursday to respond to queries in line with the funding opportunity.

“We look forward to working with the awardee(s) to provide more service-disabled veterans and their families with the training and resources they need to start or grow a small business,” said Larry Stubblefield, associate administrator at SBA’s Office of Veterans Business Development.
