HIRE DFB Incentive Programs Available for Restaurants and Hospitality Firms

The City of Deerfield Beach is making the HIRE DFB incentive programs available to local restaurants and hospitality firms in response to the industry’s staffing shortage due to the pandemic and to support their hiring efforts.

The program is designed to incentivize the hiring of Deerfield Beach residents to jobs in the City and to motivate City residents to apply for available positions.

Restaurants and hotels that apply for the HIRE DFB program, will be able to offer a $500 signing bonus for up to 5 new hires between 05/15 and 06/15.

Federal unemployment assistance being offered on top of the state benefit may be playing a factor in the shortage of people seeking employment, along with people that still don't feel ready to come back into the workforce.

As restrictions are slowly lifting across the country, and more people are getting vaccinated each day, restaurants and hotels are seeing a surge in business. The City of Deerfield Beach has opened this incentive for a short period of time to support the re-activation of this important industry sector.
