Veteran Employment Grant for businesses

The State of Wisconsin works to connect veterans with good, family-supporting jobs. One way to do that is by supporting those businesses that hire veterans.

The Benefits of Hiring a Veteran
Veterans have qualities that every employer is looking for: leadership, the ability to work as a team leader and a team member, the ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines, the ability to give and follow directions, planning and organizational skills, commitment to working safely, and flexibility and adaptability.

The Veteran Employment Grant is an incentive grant program to support businesses hiring honorably discharged veterans with a 50% or more service-related disability.

Employers can receive $5,000 in funding over a 12 month period when they hire a qualifying veteran full-time and up to $2,500 for part-time.
