Veterans Choice Program
The Home Base Iowa Program
Home Base Iowa is a one-of-a-kind program assisting veterans and transitioning service members. Currently, Iowa’s unemployment rate is just over four percent, but businesses need skilled workers. This program helps connect these businesses with qualified veterans looking for career opportunities. Countless resources help veterans and their families with education and in transitioning to a new community with focused support and individuals who want to help. Home Base Iowa’s private-public partnership provides a high level of commitment and resources for our veterans, transitioning service members and their families.
