Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification Program

Welcome to Kentucky’s Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Certification Program

The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Certification Program supports service-disabled military veterans who own a business and live in Kentucky. It is designed to promote growth among SDVOSBs and encourage these businesses to locate and expand in the Commonwealth. This certification program will also allow service-disabled veteran-owned businesses to compete for work in other states that require certification by a statewide body. Kentucky’s Small Business Connection Portal is an excellent resource that you can access to learn about new opportunities for your business.

Thank you for your interest in this important program. We have staff members who are ready and eager to assist you through the process and we encourage you to apply. The Kentucky Department of Veteran Affairs is also available if you are in need of other veteran related services. Please visit their website at
