With the economy struggling to recover from Hurricane Irma, Florida Gov.
Rick Scott is calling for help for Floridians who are still recovering from the storm.
Scott is asking Florida residents who are seeking reemployment help to register at the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity website at floridadecourier.com or by calling 800-989-8255.
Scott says that the state will give $250 for reentry and $300 for rework, depending on the severity of the situation.
“The goal is to have people able to get back to work as soon as possible,” Scott said.
“But we need them to have the skills to do that.
The job training that is available is really limited, but we want to be as specific and as specific as possible so that people are getting the skills they need to get into the job market.”
Scott says the state is also offering $100,000 for those who have lost jobs, and $100 for a job search.
The Florida Department for Economic Opportunity is providing information and advice to individuals and organizations interested in participating in reemployment programs.
The state also says that people who have been unemployed for more than six months may qualify for re-employment assistance, which is a tax credit.
“For people who are unemployed for six months or longer, we will provide up to $1,000 per month in tax credits to those who were unemployed for less than six-months,” Scott wrote in an email to reporters.
Scott also said that the Florida Health and Human Services Agency and the Department of Children and Families will provide counseling and other assistance to those unemployed.
To apply for assistance, applicants will have to meet certain requirements.
They must be unemployed and unable to work.
They need to have a valid unemployment check.
They have to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
And they have to have not been in the workforce for more to six months.
More than 400,000 people have been approved for reenrollment since the storm hit.
In some cases, the unemployment assistance will be based on people’s eligibility for the state’s Job Corps program, which offers job training.
Job Corps offers more than 2,400 training programs for unemployed Americans.
