Texas Back to Work offers millions to Texas employers

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - South Plains employers can receive cash incentives for hiring unemployed workers.

This is because of a two-year, $15 million program promoted by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and funded by the Texas Legislature in the last session.

Texas Back to Work offers employers a wage subsidy of up to $2,000/each for hiring qualified out-of-work Texans. Through the new program, employers who hire qualified individuals currently receiving unemployment benefits could receive a subsidized-wage reimbursement of up to fifty percent of the new employees' wages for eleven weeks.

Texas Back to Work is available to employers through Workforce Solutions South Plains, which also provide employers with workforce recruitment assistance, pre-screening of qualified applicants, job registration/matching assistance and resources for training.
