Self-Employment Assistance Program (SEAP)
In 2007, the State Legislature authorized the Self-Employment Assistance Program (SEAP) to help unemployed individuals who are likely to run out of unemployment benefits before they find work so they can create new businesses and job opportunities. SEAP allows people to collect benefits while they train to start and operate their own business. There are many ins and outs to this program, and you can learn more on our detailed SEAP program page.
