National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month (NPM) is recognized each September to promote family, community and business disaster planning now and throughout the year. The 2021 theme is Prepare to Protect. Preparing for disasters is protecting everyone you love. For the first time in its history, the Ready Campaign, in partnership with the Ad Council, identified the Hispanic community as a key audience, and will launch a series of Public Service Advertisements specifically designed to encourage preparedness within the underserved demographic.

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.
