Hiring Incentives

STEP UP Subsidized Training and Employment Program an initiative of the Connecticut Department of Labor and the state's five Workforce Investment Boards. Step Up offers two programs: the Wage Subsidy Program and the Small Manufacturer Training Grant Program. Each program offers employer incentives to hire new employees and create jobs.

Eligible companies, defined as a small business or manufacturer with not more than 100 employees, can apply for one program for each new hire an employer cannot use multiple programs for one new hire.

The program was expanded in June 2012 to include the Unemployed Armed Forces Member Subsidized Training and Employment Program. This program, similar to Wage Subsidy program, is available to eligible employers of any size that hire an unemployed veteran.
