Reentry Program

NH Employment Security developed a program in cooperation with the Department of Corrections to provide services to those currently in federal, state or county correctional facilities who are soon to be released. Services will include a series of workshops to be conducted and one-on-one assistance provided for resume assistance and barrier resolution. NHES with the support of employers will conduct mock interviews as well as recruiting events or job fairs within the correctional facilities. This will ensure that the participants are job ready and in some cases will have jobs available upon release. The majority of the participants in the Reentry Program will also be eligible for the services provided through the WorkNowNH Program

Employers who hire and retain WorkNowNH participants shall receive an OJT payment of 50% of earned wages for the specified training period, not to exceed 6 months or $5,000, whichever comes first.
