For Employers

Hire a Veteran and Serve Those Who Have Served

Employers, when you hire and train service-disabled Veterans you may qualify for incentives and tax credits.

Special Employer Incentives for Hiring Veterans

Veterans who successfully complete the hiring program are expected to stay on at your organization. With this program, you can hire a qualified trainee at an apprenticeship wage.

Employers are reimbursed for up to half the Veteran’s salary to cover certain supplies and equipment, additional instruction expenses, and any loss of production. (Read more in the Special Employer Incentive Fact Sheet.)
