HRA's Employment Services help meet the needs of cash assistance clients. We work closely with participants and employers to achieve worker success, improve on-the-job performance, and focus on reducing turnover by increasing the economic mobility of workers. If you are not a cash assistance client, please visit Workforce1 for employment assistance.
Back to Work: Community-based employment and training organizations that provide job readiness training, placement services, and vocational training to applicants and recipients of cash assistance.
Business Link: Business Link is at the core of the City's efforts to move cash assistance clients into jobs. Employers may qualify to receive wage subsidies or State and Federal Tax Credits.
TAG (Training Assessment Group): Educational and financial counseling and services for HRA clients who express interest in training/education and/or are currently enrolled in training/education programs allowed by HRA.
Types of Training and Education: HRA maintains a list of available training/education programs that are credentialed higher education schools, for-profit schools licensed by NYS, or other training and/or educational programs operated by non-profit organizations.
