The U.S. Small Business Association announced Tuesday Brooklyn’s Veterans Future Lab was one of 20 incubators in the country awarded a $50,000 grant for its work.

According to a statement, the prize, which was part of a program called the Growth Accelerator Fund competition, is to “draw attention and funding to parts of the country where there are gaps in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

The Veterans Future Lab (VFL) is part of the Future Labs roster of incubators administered by NYU Tandon that include the Urban Future Lab, the Digital Future Lab and the Data Future Lab. The VFL is based in Industry City.
