State budget includes funds for Cobb veterans center
When the Georgia General Assembly passed a nearly $26 billion state budget for fiscal 2021 last week, it paved the way for Atlanta-area military veterans to receive new support and career training.
Documents show the new budget will provide funding for a Georgia Veterans Career Transition Resource (VECTR) Center in Cobb County. If signed by Gov. Brian Kemp, the budget will allocate $2.25 million in state funds to renovate part of Chattahoochee Technical College's Marietta Campus, outfitting the technical school for veteran-specific training programs.
State Sen. Michael Rhett, D-Marietta, one of the lawmakers involved in adding the VECTR Center to the state budget, said his Air Force experience inspired his support for the center.
Rhett said a new VECTR Center in Cobb County will serve those from every branch of the military. The center will include programs for veterans to learn new skills in plumbing, electrical and technology fields etc. The senator believes Chattahoochee Technical College will be an important partner for the veterans and community.
"I retired from the Air Force Reserve at Dobbins Air Reserve Base," Rhett said, "and one of my jobs was career adviser, to help men and women make the transition from their military career to their civilian career."
Loud said the new facility would attract retired military veterans from across the state and country to metro Atlanta. He expects skilled workers from the military to seek out the VECTR training programs to earn certification and begin their civilian careers.
