Des Moines Workforce Center Awarded Veteran Program Incentive Funds

DES MOINES - Iowa Workforce Development announced the 2008 recipients of the Veterans Services Incentive Funds during Wednesday’s veterans’ conference. The funds are awarded to field offices going above and beyond in providing services to Iowa’s veterans at the local level.

“I’m proud of the services our staff provides throughout the state, and am honored to recognize four of our offices that have demonstrated a high level of creativity and commitment to providing services to area veterans,” said Iowa Workforce Development Director Elisabeth Buck.

Des Moines’ veteran staff serves the largest population of veterans in need in Iowa. The immensely dedicated staff reaches out to veterans in need through multiple avenues, and during the review period for the incentive awards, nearly a quarter of the veterans served in the Iowa Workforce Development who obtained employment, did so with the assistance of the Des Moines team. A number of these placements have developed as a direct result of well-planned, veteran specific job fairs and training programs.

Congratulations to the Workforce Centers in Creston, Des Moines, Mason City and Sioux City for their outstanding work. Each center will receive $3,880 to support additional veteran services programming in their community.
