The PFL Small Business Grant will pay up to $2,000 to small businesses impacted by paid family leave to offset costs related to hiring or cross-training.
Paid Family Leave can be used by an employee to bond with a new child (through birth, adoption, or foster care) or to care for a seriously ill family member.
Payments are made directly to the employer and will cover costs for:
- Training/cross-training existing staff to cover the duties of the employee on PFL;
- Marketing, recruitment, and other reasonably foreseeable training costs.
Paid Family Leave Grant Amounts
- Businesses with 51-100 employees may receive up to $1,000 per employee utilizing Paid Family Leave.
- Businesses with 1-50 employees may receive up to $2,000 per employee utilizing Paid Family Leave.
