Gold-Certified Veteran Employment Grant Fund and Program. Creates the Gold-Certified Veteran Employment Grant Fund and Gold-Certified Veteran Employment Grant Program. Businesses who obtain the gold level of certification in the Department of Veterans Services Virginia Values Veterans Certification Program may apply for grants from the Fund. The grant is $500 when a veteran is hired and employed throughout the year in a new full-time job created by a business and that pays an annual salary of at least $50,000. An additional $500 is granted if the veteran is a disabled military veteran. The bill limits the grant to a one-time amount of $10,000 per business but businesses who maintain gold-level certification may apply for additional grants of $1,000 per year.
