Veteran's Priority of Service The Manitowoc County Job Center system will provide priority of services to all covered veterans and their spouses over non-covered persons. The Manitowoc Job Center will actively monitor this process in all of the Workforce Investment Act contracts and the contract will have an assurance clause in it for this provision.

The management team of the job center will educate all staff of the definition of "covered veteran" and "covered spouse of veteran" and actively enforce the priority of service. This process will be monitored during on site monitoring of the management team’s performance and also the monitoring of the Workforce Investment Act service providers.

For universal services, notices of priority for veterans will be posted at the point of entry to the center and also on web pages. Job Center Core partners will communicate with the local veteran service officers, state veteran staff, and local county veteran representatives at the center for any targeted activities the veteran staff may be offering.

Veteran status will be identified at the point of entry into WIA programs or services. The veteran or spouse of veteran will be informed of their entitlement to the priority of service, the full array of programs and services available to them and any eligibility requirements of the program or service.

The priority will include accessing employment opportunities in advance of non-veteran persons, funding of training over non-veteran persons and receipt of supportive services over non-veteran persons.

To receive services as a Veteran from the Wisconsin Job Center, veterans must have:

  • Served at least 180 days on active other than for Reserve or National Guard training
  • Service less than 180 days but be medically discharged
  • Been awarded a campaign badge or medal

Eligibility for other programs may vary
