  • Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) - Earn up to a $2,400 Federal tax credit per qualified individual hired through the WOTC administered by the Connecticut Department of Labor (DOL) Work Opportunity Tax Credit Unit.
     
  • Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Advance Earned Income Tax Credit (AEITC) - To help low-income individuals meet expenses, the Federal government has established the EITC. Eligible workers may receive these tax credits in the form of larger tax refunds after filing their Federal income tax returns. The AEITC is simply an offshoot of the EITC which provides eligible workers with portions of their tax credits in advance of filing their Federal income tax returns. These "advanced" credits result in larger paychecks throughout the year, yet still provide tax refunds after filing Federal income tax returns.

2. Qualified Workers

Hire workers who may have had training in life management skills, occupational skills, and job retention skills as well as received employment planning assistance and access to supportive services.
