Small business hiring woes?

Pay your new hires a bonus to join your team and we can match you up to $500


A hiring incentive program for employers in Virginia’s Capital Region

Part of Governor Northam’s Return to Earn Initiative

Serving the City of Richmond and the Counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Goochland, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Powhatan

General Guidelines:

Ø  Only employers with fewer than 100 employees across all Virginia locations can participate.

Ø  New hires must be unemployed at time of hire.

Ø  Qualifying jobs must pay a minimum of $15 an hour, full or part-time.

This program is reimbursement-based; meaning the employer fronts the cost of the full bonus and we match half. The program can assist with up to 25 hires per qualifying company.

Note: Childcare businesses do not have to provide match.
