ContentVeteran's Services

SoldiersUnder federal law, eligible veterans may receive preferential services for job placement services, as well as other programs. The Dubuque Workforce Development Center has a Veteran’s Employment Specialist who works with recently separated veterans and veterans with barriers to employment. Services include counseling, testing and identifying training and employment opportunities. The Veterans' Services Team monitors job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to ensure that veterans get priority of service in referral to these jobs, and work closely with clients of Veterans Administration Vocational Rehabilitation.  All IWD offices in Region 1 provide Priority of Service to Veterans in all Department of Labor-funded Employment and Training programs. 

In addition, they conduct active outreach programs with employers, community and veterans’ organizations, unions, and local counseling and social service agencies to make sure veterans know about and receive the services for which they are eligible. They also work with eligible veterans to place them in federally funded employment and training programs, develop job interviewing and résumé writing skills, help veterans conduct productive job searches and access job listings through electronic databases. 

Veterans and their families may visit the SAMHSA website which provides valuable information on prevention, treatment, and recovery support for mental health and substance use disorders. Publications, fact sheets, and links to relevant agencies are provided along with information on SAMHSA-funded programs, agency activities, and training and technical assistance opportunities.
