The Unemployed Armed Forces Member Subsidized Training and Employment Program is designed to help former military combat personnel find new employment. The expanded armed forces program is similar to the Step Up wage subsidy program except that it is open to any company, regardless of size.

The six-month Wage Subsidy helps pay a new employee’s salary for the first six months of employment. It provides employers with up to $20 per hour, for a maximum of $12,000 over a 180-day period. Your local Veterans’ Step Up coordinator can assist you with guidelines and program details.
