Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zones

Working with a broad array of public and private sector supporters, Military Spouse Economic Empowerment Zones (MSEEZ) foster collaboration among local stakeholders and work to identify opportunities as well as barriers to entry for military spouses seeking meaningful employment.
