Using money from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act stimulus funding law, a statewide initiative called Project HIRE (Hometown Investment in Regional Economies) could pay Ohio employers $6,000 to train each qualified new worker they hire.
Employers must use the money to train newly hired workers. Organizations that accept the funding must keep new employees on their payrolls for six months.
Project HIRE’s goal is to connect employers with dislocated workers. It’s collaboration between Ohio’s Department of Job and Family Services, Department of Development, Board of Regents and local Workforce Investment Areas.
Depending on the industry and worker, employers may also be eligible for local, state or federal tax credits. For example, federal Work Opportunity Tax Credits can add up to as much as $9,000 per eligible worker hired.
