SBA Grants for Global Expansion

Thursday, September 9, 2021
2:00pm EDT

Are you aware there is a unique grant program dedicated to helping U.S. small businesses grow their global sales?

Please join the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Office of International Trade for a brief conversation with two small businesses that have utilized the State Trade Expansion Program (STEP) grant to support global sales growth.

The discussion will last approximately 20-25 minutes.  An opportunity for Q & A will be provided after the session for anyone that has additional questions and would like to stay on longer.

If you are interested in growing your global market sales and are not familiar with the STEP grant, this is a 20-minute conversation that you don’t want to miss!

To receive a weblink or call-in number to participate, please pre-register HERE and we will send you that information prior to the event.

Visit www.sba.gov/step to find out if your state participates in STEP and for local contact information.

We hope you will join us and discover how a STEP grant can help take your business global.

Transfer of the Veteran Small Business Verification Program to the SBA

Previously, veteran-owned small businesses interested in being certified by the Federal Government received their certification through the VA. In order to streamline this process with all other small business certification programs, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2021 officially requested that CVE’s responsibilities be transferred to the SBA by January 1, 2023.

Program Purpose
The CVE program plays an essential role in creating opportunity for veteran-owned small businesses across the country. It ensures that veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB) and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses (SDVOSB) can compete for set-aside and sole source contracts through the VA. Eligible VOSBs and SDVOSBs must be verified before they can participate in the program.

Please email questions to cvetransfer@sba.gov.
