Central Arkansas Veterans Benefits and Hiring Fair
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Arkansas Regional Office will co-host an in-person event titled the Central Arkansas Veterans Benefits and Hiring Fair, May 7-8, 2024 in Little Rock, Arkansas. The event is to help Veterans, Service members, spouses, family members, caregivers, and survivors learn about Veteran benefits, resources, local jobs, the claims process and/or to complete their claims, and discover benefits for spouses. The event’s objective is to help promote positive economic outcomes and overall well-being for this community. More information will be coming soon.
Outreach, Transition and Economic Development (OTED), a division of VA, established Economic Development Initiatives (EDIs) in July 2018 to provide disadvantaged transitioning Service members and Veterans with opportunities to achieve economic success and total well-being as they advance from military service to civilian life. OTED knows that economic well-being for the Veteran community requires collaboration amongst stakeholders from across the Veteran ecosystem to improve individual access to opportunities and long-term economic sustainability. The overarching goal of the EDIs is to create a comprehensive and strategic approach to policy, programs, and services to encourage community-wide economic development.
