News Release

City Rewards Businesses for Hiring MoVal Grads

For immediate release: November 15, 2017

Hire MoVal Grads

The City of Moreno Valley provides funds to local businesses that hire Moreno Valley residents who have recently graduated from educational or training programs. Through the Hire a MoVal Grad program, the City awards participating businesses a $1,000 stipend for each graduate hired.  The program makes it easy for businesses to hire local residents and receive stipends for up to 5 new hires. 

Although businesses are already signing up, funds are still available on a first come, first-served basis. The program will provide $50,000 over the course of the year, with a maximum award of $5,000 per local business. The Hire a MoVal Grad program runs through June 30, 2018.

Eligible businesses must maintain a City of Moreno Valley business license. Business participants are required to hire a Moreno Valley resident who has received a degree or certificate from an accredited college, university, vocational school or have completed a Career Technical Education curriculum (no fewer than three courses) through the Riverside County Office of Education within the past two years. New hires must work for the employer a minimum of six months, working 35 hours per week or more before the business is eligible to apply for the incentive.

Please contact the City of Moreno Valley Financial and Management Services Department at 951.413.3475 for further details and answers to program questions. Applications are available online. Interested employers may submit applications and additional documentation to sharong@moval.org or by mail to the following address:
