Did you know that employers may qualify to receive wage subsidies equal to 40% of an employee’s gross monthly salary (up to $400 per month) for a maximum of six months?
The North Flatbush Avenue BID has teamed up with Business Link and NYC Department of Human Resources to offer our businesses a financial incentive to encourage and promote the employment of out of work recipients to offset the cost of hiring new employees.
What is Employer Incentives Plus: provides a substantial wage subsidy to employers who hire recipients from NYC HRA for full or part time positions. Participating employers may qualify to receive wage subsidies equal to 40% of an employee’s monthly salary (up to $400.00 per month) for a maximum of 6 months. Payments are processed within 4 to 6 weeks.
How do you find qualified candidates? Business Link will recruit, pre-screen, and refer candidates they believe are appropriate for your positions (based on the requirements you specify) and pre-qualify them for Employer Incentives Plus.
How do I learn more about this Program?: The North Flatbush Avenue BID will be hosting a seminar in September with members of Business Link/Employer Incentives Plus and NYC Department of HRA where you will have the opportunity to learn more about this program and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. I highly recommend our small businesses to attend this meeting and find out how you can participate. Will be posting all the information on our website shortly. In the meantime, feel free to call our offices with any questions.
