Over 2,000 applications were submitted over 2 days for DYPA's innovative new '25 to 45-year-old business grant scheme' which aims to train 10,000 unemployed people and create 7,500 new full-time jobs.
Businesses that will employ unemployed people for 6 months in a new job will receive a grant of up to 100% of the total cost (salary and contributions), with a maximum of 6,132 euros. Businesses interested in participating can submit their application exclusively online, either through the DYPA e-services platform (dypa.gov.gr), or through gov.gr at the following link: https://www.gov.gr/ipiresies/epikheirematike-drasterioteta/apaskholese-prosopikou/summetokhe-epikheireseon-ergodoton-se-programmata-katartises-anergon
After submitting the application, DYPA's employment advisors will indicate to the company candidates with the required qualifications stated by the company.
The company will then pre-select the beneficiary, who will attend an 80-hour fast-track distance learning program in green or digital skills of their choice. After the completion of the training, the company will proceed to hire the unemployed person.
The total budget of the employment program amounts to 41,331,600 euros and is financed by the Recovery and Resilience Fund.
