Local radio stations 91.7 GIANT FM and COUNTRY 89 announce Job Creation Stimulus Plan

Wellport Broadcasting has announced a Job Creation Stimulus Plan offering local businesses the opportunity to apply for employee recruitment advertising grants.

Through this program, local radio stations GIANT FM and COUNTRY 89 will provide over $50,000 in advertising grants to local businesses within Niagara. The $1,000 grants will consist of 30 second messages promoting local employment opportunities, along with station website job bank platforms for job seekers. The job creation stimulus grants are available to any business in Niagara looking to hire.  Wellport Broadcasting believes the Job Creation Stimulus Plan will help Niagara get back to work and stimulate the local economy.

With CERB benefits coming to an end and the Government extending the wage subsidy program for business, now is the time.   Wellport Broadcasting General Manager Mike Haberer says “The people of Niagara have done an incredible job of crushing the curve.  As we now navigate stage 3 openings, the GIANT FM and COUNTRY 89 Job Creation Stimulus Plan can help the region and economy move forward with $50,000 in local business recruitment advertising grants”.

Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.  Niagara businesses looking to apply can do so now at jobcreation@giantfm.com and jobcreation@country89.com.
