A NYS Council member agency representative has a question for fellow Council members. Please share your responses with me if you can provide some assistance!
- A few of our programs are licensed by OTDA. We run a congregate homeless shelter and a residential transitional shelter under this licensure. Would we be a qualified employer for the Health Care Worker Bonus Program under this definition?
- We also operate a Runaway and Homeless Youth Shelter licensed under OCFS. It appears to us that these employees would be eligible under 2 (c) but we want to ensure we are interpreting this correctly?
- If so, this would make us a Qualified Employer. Would we only submit for employees working in this program or would ALL our employees be entitled if they are patient-facing?
Do you have experience with these Programs and Services and if so, have you found answers to these questions?
Thanks very much for your responses!
