Service Disabled Veterans

Veterans who are small business owners can obtain Service-Disabled Veteran-owned status in the SWaM vendor database. This is not a separate certification, but a designation of businesses owned by Service-Disabled Veterans who are certified as such by the Virginia Department of Veteran Services. Veterans can apply for small, women-owned or minority­-owned certification with the Virginia Department of Small Business and Supplier Diversity before or after obtaining an eligibility certificate from DVS. Both services are available at no charge.

Veterans wishing to apply for Service-Disabled Veteran status must first seek eligibility certification from the Department of Veteran Services by calling (804) 786-0286 or visiting the DVS website.
