HBI Business Application

Home Base Iowa Business Form

Home Base Iowa Businesses are the centerpiece of the Home Base Iowa program. With record numbers of military members leaving the service over the next five years, the influx of workers into the job market is a huge opportunity for Iowa employers. We invite all businesses to distinguish themselves by becoming a Home Base Iowa Business. By joining together, we can meet our goals of increasing employment in Iowa, decreasing veterans’ unemployment, and recruiting high quality individuals to Iowa. This agreement serves as a commitment to becoming a Home Base Iowa Business. Home Base Iowa will use the business name in efforts to promote the Home Base Iowa program. Please list your company how you want it to appear publicly. The information you submit can take 5-10 business days to appear on the website.

The United States Department of Labor has published a Veterans Hiring Toolkit which is an excellent resource for employers looking to hire veterans.
