SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 18, 2019) – The City of San Antonio is investing more than $600,000 in mutually beneficial projects that work to strengthen the partnership between San Antonio and the U.S. military. Funds from the FY 2020 Budget provide support for Joint Base San Antonio's infrastructure needs, including gate and drainage improvements. Additionally, newly-approved funds appropriated in the FY 2019 Budget support a new Hiring Our Heroes program that provides assistance to military spouses seeking employment.
"This is yet another example of the City of San Antonio's tangible commitment to supporting the military and their families," Mayor Ron Nirenberg said. "The military is now able to put the cost of these projects toward preparing their men and women for whenever their nation calls on them. Our city's efforts improve our military's operational readiness, increase service members' quality of life and add military value to our installations."

The gates at Valley Hi Drive, N. Walters Street and S. New Braunfels Avenue, located at Lackland Air Force Base and Fort Sam Houston, are scheduled for improvements that will enhance Anti-Terrorism Force Protection standard requirements, ease traffic congestion and increase safety, both inside and outside the bases. The City will also fund drainage culvert improvements at Lackland Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis. These improvements will mitigate recurring flood damage and enhance the security around the installation.
"Thank you to the City of San Antonio for its commitment to the men and women serving across Joint Base San Antonio. We are extremely grateful for the strong partnership and generous support to improve our infrastructure and quality of life initiatives," said Brig. Gen. Laura Lenderman, 502d Air Base Wing and Joint Base San Antonio Commander. "From enhancing security, to mitigating environmental concerns, to helping our military spouses gain employment, these initiatives prove we truly live in Military City, USA."

Newly-approved funds from the FY 2019 Budget will support military spouses through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation's Hiring our Heroes (HOH) Corporate Fellowship Program. The program provides the spouses of active duty military members with meaningful job opportunities by matching them with participating employers. The City's Office of Military and Veteran Affairs will coordinate between City Departments, HOH and other stakeholders.
San Antonio recently received the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's first-ever 'Community Leader Award' in the space of military spouse employment. Recognized as the community of the year for demonstrating exceptional commitment to impacting military spouse employment, the newly-approved HOH Corporate Fellowship Program is an example of how San Antonio supports this effort.
Residents can contact the City's Office of Military and Veteran Affairs at 210.207.7234 or visit sanantonio.gov/oma for more information on the HOH Corporate Fellowship Program, job opportunities and community resources.
