West Tennessee Non-Profits Helping Veterans Get Jobs

A partnership between two regional non-profit organizations and USDA Rural Development is helping West Tennessee veterans find jobs. Rural Development State Director Bobby Goode says the partnership is between Memphis Bioworks Foundation and the Crockett Policy Institute. The USDA is providing a $30,000 grant. The collaboration will establish a network of support organizations, a comprehensive database and outreach programs to help veterans find jobs in the energy sector. The program will work with veterans and businesses in several West Tennessee counties, including Obion, Tipton and Weakley.
