Through analysis of the veteran landscape, the MLT informs decision makers in order to facilitate valid and accurate resource requests. The MLT seeks to build partnerships and improve services across sectors including local, state and federal government, public, private and philanthropic organizations. Its main concern is making strategic recommendations to expand the state’s workforce capacity and improve accessibility and navigation of services and to meet the needs of SMVF.
