An innovative strategy designed to recruit people leaving the military to Wichita has been launched. The initiative, Home Base Wichita, led by the Workforce Alliance of South Central Kansas and partners including the Greater Wichita Partnership, the Greater Wichita Area Veterans Advocacy Board, and the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, received initial funding through the City of Wichita as part of an economic recovery for small business and individuals impacted by COVID-19.
The program assists businesses seeking employees who are leaving the military, as well as their spouses, veterans, and other military-connected individuals. Services are available to veterans from all branches of the military, National Guard, and Reserve, transitioning military, military spouses, and student veterans.
Training funds, up to $2,500 per hire, are also available to assist small businesses in hiring qualified veterans. Details are available at www.homebasewichita.com.
