Marion, Iowa, located in the Cedar Rapids Iowa City Corridor, is proud to be a partner with the state of Iowa and the Home Base Iowa initiative. We recognize and applaud Iowa's commitment to veterans and their families. We invite you to visit and explore Marion and discover why it is the best community in Iowa to grow a family and a business!
Home Base Iowa is a one-of-a-kind program assisting veterans and transitioning service members. The HBI program helps connect Iowa businesses with qualified veterans looking for career opportunities, specifically in semi-skilled and skilled positions.
Iowa has much to offer veterans and transitioning service members -- including no state taxes on military pension and veteran hiring preference, which allows veterans preferential treatment in hiring decisions for both public and private organizations. Additionally, Iowa provides $5,000 for down payment or closing costs of a home through the Iowa Finance Authority Military Homeownership Assistance Program. The state also provides in-state tuition rates for veterans and their dependents.
