Grants will be Available to Businesses that Hire Long-Term Unemployed New Yorkers
More Than 1,200 New Yorkers Already Hired Through the On-The-Job Training Grant Program
Albany, NY (October 8, 2013)
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that $1.2 million in job training grants is still available to businesses that hire long-term unemployed New Yorkers. This effort is part of a campaign to help individuals, who have been out of work for 26 weeks or longer, connect to available jobs in their region. To date, more than 600 businesses have taken advantage of about $8.2 million in On-the-Job training incentives to hire more than 1,200 individuals across the state.
“The State is using every tool available to actively reduce unemployment and ensure that every New Yorker has the opportunity to find a good paying, long-term, stable job,” Governor Cuomo said.“With these job training grants, we are incentivizing businesses to hire and train New Yorkers who have been unemployed for at least half a year, benefiting both job seekers and companies. I encourage interested businesses to take advantage of these grants and New Yorkers looking for new opportunities to visit a New York State Career Center to explore the wide range of available employment services.”
The State is also conducting outreach beginning this week to help New Yorkers who have been unemployed for 26 weeks or longer to find employment assistance. The Department of Labor will send an e-mail to those New Yorkers containing a simple survey that will be used to help tailor job search services for each individual who responds and to invite them to one of the 96 New York State Career Centers for these personalized services.
“Especially if you haven’t been to a New York State Career Center in a while, I am excited for you to come see what’s new and to let a Career Center specialist help you in your quest to get a job,” said State Labor Commissioner Peter M. Rivera.“We won’t stop helping until you do.”
Steve Pesta, Owner of Awards by Walsh's & Creative Marketing Inc. in Cohoes, said,“Recently I had two opportunities to take advantage of the New York State on-the-job training when I was hiring new associates. In both experiences, I found this program to be very helpful. First of all, as a small business owner, you're afraid to hire someone because it takes so long to train them in the position; it is just easier to do it yourself. With this program, it makes it much easier for a small business to take a shot and hire someone and teach them in a new trade or position. I would encourage any small business to take advantage of this program.”
