Workforce Recovery Assistance Program
Making funds available to re-employ YOUR staff, laid off due to COVID-19.
CareerSource Brevard, in partnership with the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners, encourages Brevard’s small (fewer than 50 employees) businesses impacted by COVID-19, to apply for the Workforce Recovery Assistance Program. Bring your valued employees, who make up to $16.50/hr, and were laid off due to COVID-19, back to work with this wage assistance program. Limited wage funds are available for this program and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
The application period has now ended.
