Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Tax credits of up to $2,000 per employee to New York employers who pay state corporate finance taxes to hire and assist workers who are recovering from substance abuse disorders. The program is designed to assist employers that provide a supportive work environment and conduct a formal working relationship with a local recovery or treatment organization certified by OASAS in the communities where employees work. Employers must also assist individuals in recovery from a Substance Use Disorder with the hiring process and provide training on Substance Use Disorders for all employees and supervisors.

The first program of its kind in the nation helps to rid the workplace of the stigma surrounding addiction and increase employment opportunities for New Yorkers in recovery. All eligible employers can apply to receive tax credits per eligible employee hired in the current tax year, and/or the year immediately prior to that, if hours are aggregated over two years.

This tax incentive granted to certified employers, who pay corporate finance taxes in NYS, for employing eligible individuals in recovery from a substance use disorder in part-time or full-time positions in NYS and is administered via the Request for Applications (RFA) process.
