Region IV VBOC Veterans Business Outreach Centers

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) 2014 Veterans Business Outreach Center of the Year

The mission of the Veterans' Business Outreach Center (VBOC) is to help create, develop, and retain veteran-owned small business enterprises.

Before the VBOC can provide assistance, the Small Business Administration requires all clients to complete the Electronic Request For Counseling (ERFC) form.

This ERFC form can be opened by clicking on the green map.  It will act as our Confidentiality and Code of Conduct Agreements. All client information is held in strict confidence. After submitting the ERFC successfully, a Certified Business Analyst from our office will contact you as soon as we are able to conduct an initial assessment and get you started in the process.
