The Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has launched its Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program.
Targeted industries eligible for the program include research and development in the physical, engineering, computer or life sciences; light assembly, packaging, and fabrication associated with research and development in the physical, engineering, computer or life sciences; software, computing and technology; light manufacturing; and general office.
This program will incentivize the creation and retention of full-time employment within the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Areas by offering a grant payment to companies that create or relocate high wage full-time jobs within an area.
Companies can earn up to $8,000 when a new employee is living and working in a CRA area. Currently, funding for the new Job Creation & Talent Attraction Program is only available in the downtown redevelopment area.
