Programs for Employers

Work Opportunity Tax Credit (Federal)
The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a federal income tax credit that provides an incentive for private for profit employers to hire individuals of certain target groups, which have traditionally faced significant barriers to employment.

Employers can save up to $2,400 per new hire. For the Long-Term Family Assistance recipients, the employer can save up to $9,000 per new hire, over a two year time period. www.doleta.gov/business/incentives/opptax

Veteran Employment Grant Program
The Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) offer the Wisconsin Veteran Employment Grant Program to encourage Wisconsin employers to hire and retain eligible veterans.

Employers can receive up to $10,000 in funding over four years when they hire a qualifying veteran full-time and up to $5,000 for part-time. www.dwd.wisconsin.gov/veterans/emp_grant.htm

Veterans Professional/Occupational Licensure Fee Wavier Program
Wisconsin Act 209 created a program whereby the Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) establishes and maintains a program under which 13 State Agencies will grant fee waivers to qualified veterans when issuing initial professional and occupational licenses. Several insurance-related positions are eligible for this program. www.dva.state.wi.us/Ben-feewaiver.asp
