HONOR FORTIFY EMPOWER IMPACT
The Department of Military Affairs & Veterans Services (DMAVS) and NH Employment Security (NHES) celebrate businesses, organizations, colleges and schools in New Hampshire that strive to honor, fortify, empower, and positively impact the lives of NH Service members, Veterans and their families.
The NH Veteran-Friendly Business Recognition Program launched in spring 2020. Under the direction of the Adjutant General, it was developed by a group consisting of representatives from state government, the private business sector and the NH Veteran community. Criteria outlined serve to identify, define, and recognize four levels of veteran-friendly practices, procedures and protocols. The criteria provide New Hampshire businesses with a roadmap to develop and enhance veteran-friendly practices. For more information on how your business can apply for recognition, see the Apply page.
An investment in a Veteran is an investment in your community!
