The Lt. Governor has joined Governor Holcomb in creating the Next Level Veterans initiative. This new statewide program brings together public and private organizations to recruit, employ and connect discharging military personnel to Indiana and retain veterans who are already in the state.
A new website, INvets.org, launched and is a one-stop-shop for veterans across the nation who are looking for jobs, training, housing or information about the Hoosier state.
Next Level Veterans will provide veteran incentives, support personnel and provide marketing assistance. The Indiana Department of Veterans' Affairs, Indiana National Guard, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority are partnering with Conexus Indiana and the Indiana Economic Development Association to support the program and the veterans who relocate to Indiana.
Bringing different state agencies and organizations that can help veterans gives Indiana the opportunity to have more veterans relocate or stay here and keep Indiana's economy thriving.
