As a veteran or eligible spouse, you receive priority in the services we offer. Those services include job referrals, access to job training and staff resources.
Priority of service means the right of eligible veterans to take precedence over noneligible persons in obtaining workforce services. Taking precedence can mean they receive access to workforce services before noneligible persons, or, If workforce services are limited, eligible veterans receive access to workforce services instead of noneligible persons.
Noneligible persons who are currently receiving workforce services will not be displaced in order to provide priority of service to eligible veterans. Staff must ensure that the next available workforce services are provided to eligible veterans.
