Veterans Business Program


MnDOT's Veterans Business Program provides verified veteran-owned small businesses with increased access to state contracting opportunities. Read more about our policy.

Any MnDOT highway construction project should have established veteran-owned small business participation goals, except those receiving federal funds. Veterans Program specialists evaluate each proposal for state funded MnDOT projects or contracts before the project is advertised. The specialists then set veteran-owned small business participation goals. These goals are stated in the veteran-owned small business special provisions, which is included in the contract/proposal.

Before you can participate as a verified veteran-owned small business, read the eligibility requirements and complete the appropriate forms to demonstrate that your business is eligible for the program. Contact our team of specialists with any questions.
