Hiring Incentive Training Grant Offers Employers Grants For Hiring Veterans

The state Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development announced it has more than doubled cash grants available to employers hiring Massachusetts residents who have been unemployed for 6 months or more, or Massachusetts veterans, regardless of length of unemployment.

Eligible employers may now apply for grants of $5,000 for each new hire who meets the Hiring Incentive Training Grant program requirements. Employers may receive up to $75,000 each calendar year, according to a news release.

Increased grant funding is available through the state’s Hiring Incentive Training Grant, a program of the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund. Any for-profit company or non-profit organization that contributes to the Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund, a state fund enacted in 1998, are encouraged to apply.
