Tax Credits & Incentives
Hiring and training new staff can be costly, but San Francisco’s On the Job Training assistance program can assist you! By hiring eligible San Francisco residents through the workforce development system, employers can be reimbursed for 50% of the wages paid during a contracted training period, up to $6,000 per individual.
The Federal Bonding Program allows employers to confidently hire at risk applicants knowing they will be protected against acts of dishonesty. Being bonded allows applicants with less than perfect histories the opportunity to prove to a new employer that they are a valuable addition to their workforce while providing the employer with a “safety net”.
Certain employers can be eligible for thousands of dollar in local, state and Federal tax credits and incentives based on hiring as well as other business expenses. Click on any of the programs below for more information.
