Home Base Iowa Program

Welcome to Home Base Iowa

The most sincere thank-you is an easy transition. Home Base Iowa is a program to help veterans find jobs, explore career paths, and make a smooth transition to civilian life in Iowa. In an ideal world, someone who has mastered the challenges of military life would find countless opportunities back home. This site, in partnership with Home Base Iowa and the Iowa Lakes Corridor, is to provide veterans countless resources on opportunities in Iowa.

This site features job postings, links to housing and rental assistance, educational opportunities, financial assistance, job training, and much more.
