Assemblywoman Arroyo
knows it’s about jobs, jobs, jobs.
Under the new law Assemblywoman Arroyo helped pass:
  • Companies that hire underprivileged youths aged 16 to 24 will get a tax break and an additional credit for retaining those employees

  • $25 million will go toward the Summer Youth Employment Program

  • $12 million will be available for critical training, mentoring and job-placement programs for inner-city youths

  • $2.5 million will go toward the Displaced Homemakers Program

  • The MTA payroll tax will be eliminated or reduced for many small businesses

“Giving young people the skills they need to earn a living and help provide for their families makes the Bronx a better place.”
