Small Business Webinar: Local and State Disability Inclusion Incentives and Resources for Small Businesses

Did you know that many local and state governments provide incentives to small businesses to hire and retain workers with disabilities? These benefits, such as tax incentives and reimbursements for the cost of workplace accommodations, can help small business owners meet their workforce needs.

Join the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN) on Wednesday, May 1, 2024, 1–2:15 p.m. ET, for the second webinar in our small business series, “Local and State Disability Inclusion Incentives and Resources for Small Businesses.”

Experts from Minnesota; Tacoma, WA; and the National Disability Institute will discuss how state-coordinated reasonable accommodation funds and tax incentives benefit small businesses.

During this webinar, panelists will highlight:

  • A local tax incentives program that helps small businesses hire talent with disabilities to meet their workforce needs.
  • A state government-funded program that provides employers with financial assistance to cover the cost of reasonable accommodations for disabled employees.
  • Ways to build mutually beneficial relationships among small businesses, community organizations, and state and local governments.

Following the webinar, you are invited to participate in a 30-minute Q&A session. ASL and real-time captioning will be provided.

Participation is free, but space is limited.
