A large chunk of change was just awarded to the Military Growth Task Force, based in Jacksonville for jobs for Veterans and military spouses
The NC Department of Commerce and Workforce Development awarded a 900-thousand dollar grant to the group.
The money comes from stimulus funds, and will go to the veteran's imitative project. A program that will now aim to secure jobs for about 200 Veterans in counties across the east.
The project will provide training and skill certification opportunities to Veterans and military spouses, which they hope will result in immediate employment.
