Invest Your Tax Dollars in Your Community
Director, Workforce Development
JARI is proposing to utilize tax credits to provide training programs for Machine Operators, CDL Drivers and Automotive Technicians for individuals residing in neighborhoods located in the City of Johnstown. Companies with state tax liability can make a donation to the JARI Workforce Program and receive 55% in tax credits through the state Neighborhood Assistance (NAP) Program. A company that participates who also has federal tax liability may spend only 23 to 29 cents on a dollar. Upon completion of the programs, participants will acquire the skills needed to obtain employment in the energy, manufacturing, distribution and construction industries.
Over the past 4 years, JARI has used tax credit donations to fund short-term training programs that placed 40 unemployed/underemployed workers into full time employment offering family sustaining wages with benefits. Please help keep the momentum going by considering a donation to the program in exchange for tax credits. Any business willing to contribute would need to provide JARI with a commitment letter by August 17, 2018.
