Giving North Platte employers the resources they need to recruit high-quality jobs and a highly-skilled workforce in our community.

    how it works   

The program offers local employers up to $5,000 per open position (in the form of matching funds) for the purpose of creating a robust, attractive worker incentive package to help fill a job.

Qualifying worker incentives can include relocation expenses, down payments or deposits, equipment purchases, help with student loan repayment, specialized training certificates, and more.

Any North Platte Area Chamber and Development member in good standing is qualified to apply for funds. Jobs must be full-time and pay at least $20/hour within three years to qualify.

"Thanks to the program, we were able to bring in a trustworthy employee from Maryland to help fill a crucial position at our business. This program enabled us to offer her a relocation package that we would not have otherwise been able to provide. Thank you North Platte Chamber and for believing in our local businesses and helping us gain quality workers."
— Shae Caldwell, owner, Whitetail Screen Print & Cycle Sport

North Platte Area Chamber & Development and other organizers of the program believe that to truly grow our community is to add workers to the labor force, not recirculate existing employees from one local employer to another. The program is aimed at bringing new, highly-skilled workers to our community, and retaining local high school and college graduates. We believe that robust worker incentive programs can help.
