Alcohol & Drug Service Providers in New Hampshire and Florida Partner with UST to Lower the Cost of Unemployment for their Members

Share Article

The New Hampshire Alcohol & Other Drug Service Providers Association and the Florida Alcohol & Drug Abuse Association have both partnered with the Unemployment Services Trust (UST) to help their members reduce the cost of unemployment and potentially save thousands of dollars during times of increased UI debt, reports UST.

Unemployment Services Trust (UST) is pleased to announce new partnerships with the New Hampshire Alcohol & Other Drug Service Providers Association (The NH Providers) and the Florida Alcohol & Drug Abuse Association (FADAA). Joining forces to offer operating expense reductions to nonprofit alcohol & drug service providers in both New Hampshire and Florida, agencies associated with these organizations will now have greater access to reduced unemployment costs and long term savings.

Each partnership will allow organizations with a 501(c)(3) tax designation to better take advantage of a 1972 federal law that allows nonprofits to opt out of the state unemployment tax system. By paying only the dollar-for-dollar cost of unemployment benefits paid to former employees, most nonprofits that opt out of the state system see a significant reduction in their annual unemployment costs.

These partnerships will provide a multitude of benefits to alcohol and other drug service providers seeking to preserve their funding while also allowing them to do more for those that they serve.
