Yavapai Reentry Project hosts meeting on employment tax credits
Special to the Courier

Yavapai Reentry Project will host a community meeting on employment tax credits from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. today, June 24 in the Founders Suite of the Prescott Public Library at 215 E. Goodwin Street in Prescott.

At the meeting, results of the county-wide employment survey will be presented, and community members and employers will learn more about the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, which provides employers an incentive for hiring employees from nine groups facing high rates of unemployment including veterans, temporary aid for needy families recipients, vocational rehabilitation participants, people reentering into the community from prison.

Information on how to apply for the federal tax credit and the paperwork will be provided at the meeting, AmeriCorps VISTA and Project Coordinator of the Yavapai Reentry Project Becca Fealk said. Light refreshments will be provided.

"We are hoping that the meeting will bring out employers so we can hear their experience and concerns directly," Fealk said. "Collaboration in this effort is the key to success for employers and our participants."

Employers answered the survey, wich was conducted online, by email, website and Facebook from October 2012 through January 2013.

Employers were asked about hiring practices for people with felony records, concerns about hiring those with criminal histories, and advice employers had for employment specialists, Fealk said.

"We were hoping to get a large sample size, and did okay, getting 97 responses" Fealk said.

The Yavapai Reentry Project, a program of the nonprofit Community Counts, promotes successful reintegration of former inmates in a way that improves community safety by reducing criminal behavior.

Since beginning in 2011, the project has helped 40 individuals and their families obtain services and support to reintegrate into the community, Fealk said.

For more information, please contact Becca Fealk at 928-708-0100 or bfealk@yavapaireentryproject.org.
