 Veterans Services

Picture of a soldiers hands foldedUnder federal law, veterans receive Priority of Service in all DOL funded employment and training programs. The Veterans Representatives for Region 9 are housed in the Davenport office. They coordinate all services provided to veterans, including counseling, testing, and identifying training and employment opportunities. They also monitor job listings from federal agencies and federal contractors to ensure that veterans get priority service in referral to these jobs, and work closely with clients of VA Vocational Rehabilitation.

They also aid veterans with placement in federally-funded employment and training programs, develop job interviewing and résumé writing skills and help veterans conduct productive job search's by accessing job listings through electronic data bases. 

All IWD offices in Region 9 provide Priority of Service to veterans in all DOL funded Employment and Training programs. If you are a veteran and live in Region 9, contact your local Workforce Development Center for assistance or send and email to  Craig or Jason.
