The program offers a minimum of 50 percent, up to $8,000, of a new hire's wages to subsidize for a training period of up to six months. The center provides qualified, pre-screen workers that closely match the requirements of available positions.
To be considered for the program, a business must be located in Colorado for at least 120 days, pay into workers' compensation and unemployment insurance, and have not laid off employees within the past 90 days. Subsidies are only available for full-time positions that provide at least 32 hours of work per week.
To apply for the program, businesses must submit an interest questionnaire online at www.milehigh.com.
