What is Priority of Service?

At the Mesa County Workforce Center, Veterans and their eligible spouses receive Priority of Service in all federally funded programs. But what exactly qualifies an individual as a Veteran or eligible spouse?

To receive Priority of Service (go to the head of the line) as a Veteran, you need to have at least one day of active duty and anything but a dishonorable discharge. An eligible spouse is the wife or husband of a Veteran who served at least one day of active duty and received anything but a dishonorable discharge. That is all you need to receive Priority of Service at the Mesa County Workforce Center.

Federally funded programs such as the Career Development Program, TANF, and Employment First have eligibility requirements as well. You may qualify for Priority of Service but if you do not meet the eligibility requirements of the program, you cannot participate in that program, regardless of your Veteran status. However, should you meet the eligibility requirements for the program, and qualify for Priority of Service, you will go to the “head of the line”.

Veteran Priority of Service – one of the many ways we say “Thank you for your service” at the Mesa County Workforce Center.
