If your company is considering applying for the Transitional Work Bonus program for a July 1 start date, a written program must accompany your application. For employers that do not have a current program, the BWC offers a grant for eligible employers. The grant will cover 75% of allowed costs in hiring a certified developer to work with the employer to write the program.
If you're planning on applying for the program and do not have a written program, it is important that you begin development in the next few weeks in order to meet the application deadline for the Bonus program.
First Connect will walk you through the written process from start to finish, provide a cost quote before you begin and information about what you can expect from the grant. Our certified BWC developers are located in all corners of Ohio. For more information about First Connect, please visit our website.
Current Transitional Work Bonus Participants
All current Transitional Work Bonus participants must submit an application annually if you'd like to continue in the program. For private employers, the deadline for applications is May 31. Please visit the Ohio BWC website to submit your application: Ohio BWC Bonus Program Application.
