Building With Our Veterans

by Mecklenburg County, NC for the TLG 2018 Case Study program

Dec 5, 2017

An economic recovery related construction boom in Mecklenburg County prioritized increased staffing in the Code Enforcement division due to increased demand and a scarcity of qualified applicants. Simultaneously, the county prioritized eliminating/reducing Veteran homelessness. A synergy between the priorities resulted in the "BUILDING WITH OUR VETERANS" program. It recruits, trains and hires veterans with construction industry experience in collaboration with Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC). In the Calendar Year 2016, the County recruited, trained and hired five veterans as code officials.
