BREAKING NEWS: As first announced on September 23, 2022, VA has ceased accepting new applications for Veteran-owned small business verification or reverification as of October 24, 2022. This action was taken to facilitate the January 1, 2023, transfer of CVE’s verification functions to the Small Business Administration (SBA) as mandated by the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act. New applications should be submitted to SBA when they begin receiving new applications on or around January 2023. If you have additional questions about
SBA’s future certification program, please contact SBA at cvetransfer@sba.gov. See Frequently Asked Questions concerning this change.
