HireNow Massachusetts

Employers may be approved for up to $400,000 for 100 eligible newly hired employees.

HireNow provides funding to eligible Massachusetts employers who hire and retain Massachusetts residents. Funding is awarded at a flat rate of $4,000 for each eligible newly hired employee. The goal of HireNow is to address hiring challenges experienced by Massachusetts employers because of the COVID-19 pandemic. HireNow provides resources to enable Massachusetts employers to broaden their recruiting practices to include workers who do not meet traditional qualifications but can fulfill job requirements with additional training upon hire. Employers are encouraged to rethink hiring practices, minimum qualifications, and onboarding processes to consider candidates with qualification that may differ from traditional standards to increase staffing levels in a tight labor market. 

Employers may be approved for up to $400,000 for 100 eligible newly hired employees.

HireNow is administered by Commonwealth Corporation on behalf of the Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development.
