Home Base Iowa Continues to GrowMegan Kopp
Governor Terry Branstad and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds today congratulated Warren County on achieving Home Base Iowa Community designation. Warren County is the 25th in the state to achieve this recognition.
The Home Base Iowa is a unique, non-profit private-public partnership that focuses on recruiting veterans and active duty service members for quality, well-paying private-sector jobs in Iowa.
- In March, Iowa was named one of only a handful of states to be designated an All-Vet State by “Hiring Our Heroes,” a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
- In June, Iowa was named as the first state to offer “Hilton Honors Military Initiative.” This is a program set up by Hilton Worldwide, and connects military members and their families across the nation with free lodging at Hilton hotels as they pursue their job hunt, or need somewhere to stay as they relocate for their careers.
- In July, Iowa was named the third “Get Skills to Work State” by the Manufacturing Institute and National Association of Manufacturers.
