California Employers Could Receive Grants under the Paid Family Leave Program?
These grants are funded by the California Employment Training Panel and California Labor and Workforce Development Agency. They are geared toward helping small businesses offset the increased costs that may arise when an employee is out on leave, such as cross-training existing staff, and hiring and training new and/or temporary employees.
Grants are available in the following amounts:
- Businesses with 51–100 employees may receive up to $1,000 per employee utilizing Paid Family Leave.
- Businesses with one to 50 employees may receive up to $2,000 per employee utilizing Paid Family Leave.
To qualify, businesses must:
- Employ between one and 100 employees;
- Be registered to do business in the State of California;
- Be in an active status with the office of the California Secretary of State; and
- Have an active California Employer Account Number under which employees are listed for payroll.
For more information, or to apply for a grant, visit CaliforniaPFL.com.
The grant period is until May 31, 2024, or until funds run out.
