The Home Base Iowa (HBI) program is an initiative put forward by Governor Terry Branstad and Major General Tim Orr, the Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard. The HBI mission is to provide veterans and transition service members and their families with opportunities and benefits for a successful transition in Iowa--a place to call home. HBI envisions Iowa as the "State of Choice" for veterans and transitioning service members for employment, education and/or continued service; and service members are valued in communities which are welcoming, affordable, safe and family-friendly.
This initiative is a public-private partnership to recruit veterans and transitioning service members for private-sector careers in Iowa. With record numbers of military members leaving the service over the next five years, the influx of workers into the job market is a tremendous opportunity for Iowa to recruit highly trained and skilled service members to support growing workforce needs right here in Pleasant Hill. State Home Base Iowa staff actively recruit skilled employees from large military bases throughout the United States to fill open positions across Iowa.The Home Base Iowa Community designation demonstrates local government and local business support for the Home Base Iowa initiative.
The Home Base Iowa Act was passed by the Iowa Legislature in a broad bi-partisan manner and signed by Governor Branstad on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014. To learn more about the provisions of the Home Base Iowa Act, visit homebaseiowa.gov.
