From The Foundation Center...

Veterans Corporation Seeks Applications for Veteran Entrepreneurship Support Grant

Program Deadline: Open

The Veterans Corporation ( http://www.veteranscorp.org ) is seeking applications for the first year of its Veteran Entrepreneurship Support grant initiative. This initiative will support educational projects and organizations that address the entrepreneurial needs of veterans, including service-disabled veterans and members of the National Guard and Reserve forces, who are starting, growing, or preparing a small business for deployment.

Grants will be awarded in three program categories: 1) Education; 2) Veteran Outreach; and 3) Service-Disabled Veteran Assistance. Proposed projects should be proactive and collaborative endeavors that leverage additional support and serve as catalysts for long- term changes in the veteran entrepreneurial community. Grants will not be awarded to individuals. Applications will only be accepted from organizations that propose activities to directly promote and advance veteran entrepreneurship in the United States. Grants will be made in six-month or twelve-month periods. Multi- year grants will not be accepted. The maximum grant amount is $50,000. Organizations can apply for multiple grants. Currently, the grant deadline for general program grants is open. TVC's Board of Directors meets quarterly to review grant applications.
