Florida EDI (November 2023)
Outreach, Transition and Economic Development (OTED) will co-host an in-person, two-day event with the Florida Regional Office—the Florida Economic Development Initiative (EDI), November 1–2, 2023. The event is to help Veterans, service members, their spouses, partners, family members, and caregivers learn about Veteran benefits, resources, and initiatives, 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) 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.
