THE SAFER COMMUNITIES & SMALL BUSINESS ACT
Supporting Small Businesses and Formerly Incarcerated Citizens - HB 3418
This legislation will support small businesses struggling to hire employees, foster opportunities for formerly incarcerated individuals, improve public safety and reduce the costs of incarceration. This initiative will provide wage subsidies to businesses that hire formerly incarcerated individuals and increased tax incentives to small businesses that hire returning citizens. We are asking legislators to allocate 5 million dollars into a supplemental budget this fall to launch this important program!
