GREENE COUNTY: IOWA'S FIRST HOME BASE IOWA COMMUNITY VETERAN VOUCHERS FUND

OBJECTIVE: To provide an incentive for veterans and their families to visit Greene County for job interviews

PURPOSE: A fund has been created to help veterans pay for motel rooms, meals and gas during their job interviews in Greene County.

  • Major employers, banks, businesses and organizations have donated to a central fund that is operated by GCDC.
  • If a veteran and/or their family is coming to Greene County for a job interview the potential employers will request Veteran Vouchers from the fund in the following denominations: $25 for gas (request up to two per visit)
  • $25 for meals (request two per visit if family accompanies)
  • $100 for lodging
  • The vouchers will be e-mailed to the employer and handed out at the interview. The veteran can then redeem them at Greene County gas stations, restaurants and lodging.
  • The vouchers will then be redeemed for cash from the GCDC Fund by the retailers.
  • The fund will be continually replenished by donations to meet the demand from veterans.
