Grant Relief for Onboarding Workers (GROW) COVID-19 financial assistance is intended for business entities, both for-profit and not-for-profit, negatively impacted by the pandemic, including but not limited to, hospitality (hotel and food service), transportation, retail, travel, cosmetology, dependent care, and other industries with front-line workers, and particularly for small businesses.
WorkSource Montgomery, Inc. (WSM) will award grants in two tiers: one flat rate for part-time workers and one for full-time workers; meant to cover the cost of the first few weeks of onboarding training upon hiring.
Grants will be awarded upon receipt of verification of employment. Please see eligibility, requirements, and FAQs. This is for newly hired employees only.
The GROW grant offered by WSM is supported 100% by the United States Department of Treasury as part of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds as permitted by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).
