Regional Veterans Initiative

Client: King County, WA

Wrote a report on the initiative’s planning phase and the recommendations of a Special Advisor Panel for a 2013-15 Regional Veterans Initiative Action Plan. The initiative aims to help military veterans in King County and their families access the services they have earned and deserve by increasing the coordination of state, federal, regional and nonprofit efforts, improving customer service, and increasing awareness. Developed an outline, summarized research, attended Special Advisor Panel meetings, provided multiple drafts and responses to comments, and prepared the final report. (2013)

Results: The Special Advisor Panel conveyed their recommendations to the County Executive. The Executive included the RVI in his proposed 2014 budget, to be funded from the Veterans and Human Services Levy.
