The MA Department of Career Service (DCS) is pleased to announce that the MassHire Metro North Career Centers are the recipient of a DCS Jobs for Veterans State Grant (JVSG) Incentive Award. The MassHire Metro North Career Centers are the 2018 JVSG “Bronze” winners of $6,500.
The JVSG Incentive Awards recognize the efforts of an entire One-Stop Career Center (not just a Veterans’ unit or Veterans’ staff) whose efforts demonstrate: improvement and modernization of employment, training, and placement services for Veterans; the reward and celebration of excellence in priority of service; development and delivery of best practice techniques and improved performance outcomes for Veterans.
The MassHire Metro North Career Centers demonstrate these ideals through their teamwork, using a unified approach to engaging partners and employers in support of Veterans through a tight integration of all Career Center staff and programs.
These incentive funds are made available to the Commonwealth during the fourth quarter of the JVSG. The incentive award must be used in its entirety, only by the lead operator of the recognized One-Stop Career Centers for those centers’ specific needs such as: computer hardware/software; resource room or library materials; individual training accounts; training or intensive services and/or other office-wide uses. Administrative costs are not an acceptable use of incentive monies. The purpose of the incentive funds is to enhance services provided to Veteran jobseekers.
Congratulations to the MassHire Metro North Career Centers and thank you for your continued commitment to providing quality services to our Veteran customers!
