Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Detroit Regional Office co-hosted an in-person event titled the Southeast Michigan Economic Development Initiative (EDI), March 11-12, 2024. The event was 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 was to help promote positive economic outcomes and overall well-being for this community.

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.
