Wage Subsidy Program (WSP) 2015-2016

Appropriation Level: $950,000

Using wage subsidies as a hiring incentive, non-profit agencies work with employers to develop positions for individuals who have been unable to find employment through conventional means. The non-wage subsidy portion of the contracts is performance-based and vendors earn reimbursement as participants become employed, transition to and retain unsubsidized employment. Program goals are:

  • Completion of 30 days in subsidized employment;
  • Transition to unsubsidized employment;
  • Completion of 90 days in unsubsidized employment, or 120 days for direct placement.
