EDI: Northern California (July)
Economic Development Initiative (EDI) – July, 2022; Exact Date/Time TBD
Northern California Economic Development Initiative (EDI) is a three-day, online conference for Veterans, their family members, spouses, and caregivers living in Central and Northern California. The conference is scheduled to take place in July 2022 (exact dates TBD). This EDI includes connections to local agencies, access to VA benefits and services, and a discussion of service gaps for Veteran and military families and strategies to address those gaps at an Economic Development Partnership Roundtable.
Outreach, Transition and Economic Development (OTED) 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 as well as 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.
