Supporting Kent Manufacturers During COVID-19
The Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee (AJAC), Kent Valley Economic Development, City of Kent, Port of Seattle, and Green River College have partnered to support Kent manufacturers and their employees during the COVID-19 pandemic through the Manufacturing Employee Retention Program (MERP).
This is primarily for businesses located in Kent or companies that have qualifying employees that reside in the Kent community.
This funding will support 65 individuals who either work or live in Kent, Washington. Employers who choose to participate can receive $2,200 per employee in wage reimbursement through October 31, 2020 (retroactive to July 1, 2020). Each company can receive funding for 10 or less employees.
There is no deadline to apply however; funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To apply for this funding and learn about the eligibility requirements, please visit: https://ajactraining.org/merp.
