Military Families and Veterans Support

Georgia is home to thirteen military installations, nearly two million military family members, and one of America’s most robust veteran populations. Georgia must keep our nation’s promises to them, and we must ensure that their skills and experiences are properly valued as a vital part of our state and our economy.

Transitions from Service

Many service members finish their service and need added resources to transition to civilian life; proper support to get new veterans and their families fully integrated into civilian life with jobs and education is critical for them to thrive.

Veterans Work Opportunity Tax Credit

Incentivize employers to hire veterans and count experience gained while in the military towards pay scale and position. 

Veterans Higher Ed Initiative

Continue to decrease barriers for veterans to pursue higher education by providing dedicated veteran support staff at every college and university, more credit transfer opportunities and additional financial support.

Veteran Homelessness

End veteran homelessness in Georgia through a federal, state and nonprofit joint venture to quickly identify veterans without homes, veterans on housing waiting lists and at-risk veterans to connect them to permanent, affordable housing and supportive services.

Protect Our Defenders Act

Secure comprehensive legislation to support our veterans on issues ranging from predatory lending, suicide prevention, inadequate healthcare, and post-deployment poverty.

Military Inclusion

Tackle challenges facing veterans of color, women veterans and LGBTQ+ veterans by coordinating specialized outreach efforts and addressing the health, housing, education, employment and legal challenges of these communities.
