Job creation

ACTIONS CONSIDERED

Projects that focus on the creation of new stable jobs for persons with disabilities. In addition, singular aids may be granted to consolidate already created workplaces of persons with disabilities and that may present specific difficulties with regards to their continuity. In particular, actions in the following areas shall be financed:

  1. Investment projects in fixed assets whose purposes are the creation and/or consolidation of workplaces for persons with disabilities, preferably in Special Job Centres.
  2. Activities aimed at creating workplaces through employment mediation services, considering the exceptional financing of activity expenses of said services, whenever the projects are in line with the objectives established in each case.
  3. Creation of work places for persons with disabilities through projects related with the commissioning of "employment enclaves" as well as "support job" programs as objectives aligned specifically for the integration of persons with disabilities in normalised work environments.

TYPE OF EXPENSE

Fixed asset investment expenses that are necessary for creating new work places such as constructions and/or reforms, purchase of equipment and facilities and administrative or management expenses directly related to the project.

In the specific case of applications relative to financing of projects related to job mediation services or commissioning of "employment enclaves" or programs for "employment with support", the financing may consider current expenses of the entity as long as they are duly accredited and the description of the project budget included the assumption of such expenses.
