SBA Veterans Assistance Programs: An Analysis of Contemporary Issues [January 10, 2019] [open pdf - 1MB]
"This report examines the economic circumstances of veteran-owned businesses drawn from the Bureau of the Census's 2012 Survey of Business Owners (SBO). It also provides a brief overview of veterans' employment experiences, comparing unemployment and labor force participation rates for veterans, veterans who have left the military since September 2001, and nonveterans. The report also describes employment assistance programs offered by several federal agencies to assist veterans transitioning from the military to the civilian labor force and examines, in greater detail, the SBA's [U.S. Small Business Administration] veteran business development programs, the SBA's efforts to enhance veterans' access to capital, and the SBA's veteran contracting programs."
