The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced the expansion of a program aimed at increasing education and employment opportunities to America's veterans to an additional to 25 new communities. The Veterans Economic Communities Initiative (VECI) brings together local and national partners to coordinate services for veterans, servicemembers and military families. The full list of VECI communities is available on the VA website at www.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=2732. New communities being launched in early 2016 are denoted with an asterisk on the list, and do not yet have an economic liaison assigned to their location.
