Put Illinois to Work: Employers Wanted!

Illinois Provides Subsidized Employment for Up to Six Months

Put Illinois to Work program is an initiative of Governor Pat Quinn to create jobs throughout Illinois and provide employment experience to those hardest hit by this recession. Put Illinois to Work is funded by the State of Illinois and federal funding made available in the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families Emergency Contingency Fund created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Through Put Illinois to Work, unemployed and underemployed Illinois residents can be placed into subsidized employment positions for up to six months. Under the subsidized employment model, the wages of the participant are provided by state/federal funding, and the employer must provide supervision and training of the participant for the duration of the placement.

This program has been designed to provide support to hard-working Illinoisans, with safeguards to ensure program integrity and that all Federal TANF guidelines and stringent ARRA audit standards are met. The funding expires on September 30, 2010. Therefore all subsidized employment placements must end by that date.

If you have even one position available, Put Illinois to Work can welcome you as an employer!
