Our Partnership

The Subsidized Employment Program provided by Department of Assistance aims to provide permanent, full-time employment with its eligible participants. 

What is the Subsidized Employment Program?

Sacramento County residents who are unemployed and have a lack of experience are brought into the Subsidized Employment Program to introduce them in the workforce. This program then provides reimbursement of wages for employers up to six months to encourage recruiting from the program. The mission of the Department of Human Assistance is to make each candidate of the program self-sufficient and successful in the workforce of California and as a result they lead a happier and more fulfilling life for themselves and their families.

Do You Qualify?

The Subsidized Employment Program helps bring people with a low amount of work experience, little applicable skills, and minimal education to a stable career in the work force.

How the DHA Finds Work

The Subsidized Employment Program finds available employment positions for eligible candidates within the program. When a position is found for a candidate, their resume and relevant information is sent to the employer for them to review and employ.


12 Month Program

After the DHA finds employment for a candidate, the first six months include an active collaboration with the DHA and the employer to form a solid foundation of employment for the candidate. After 12 months of successful employment, the candidate will successfully leave the program becoming part of the workforce.


Retention Services

Each participant of the program will be in contact with a retention specialist that assists with barriers to employment. Working through issues such as childcare, transportation to work, attendance, time management and more. These services last for the first six months of employment.
