If you’re a business within the Myrtle Avenue BID and would like to participate in the new Myrtle Avenue local youth employment program, please read and complete the application below.
HOW IT WORKS
Step 1: Create a job listing
Provide details in the form below about the available job. We’ll promote it on our Myrtle Avenue Job Board and share with neighbors, particularly with groups within local NYCHA developments. You can also post and share the job wherever you’d like as well!
Step 2: Hire a local teen.
Reimbursement payroll grants will be provided to businesses who hire anyone ages 16-21 who’s home address is within Fort Greene & Clinton Hill (see map).
Step 3: Pay and request reimbursement
Begin paying the new employee, then submit proof of payroll expenses to the BID to request reimbursement. Up to $1,500 will be provided to businesses, reimbursing for wages to a qualifying employee only.
Businesses can apply for this program on a rolling basis (there is no deadline). But, the money will be reserved for businesses on a first come, first serve basis. Once a business applies and submits a job description, monies will be set aside for your anticipated reimbursement. Reimbursement requests can be submitted as soon as the business has enough payroll receipts to reach your desired reimbursement amount (up to $1,500).
This business assistance grant program is sponsored by Con Edison and The Gilbert Rivera Charitable Foundation.
