Dear Fellow Staff:

On April 24, 2020, I sent a letter announcing that NCIA had received a stimulus loan, and that we were using that loan to reward our front-line workers –our residential counselors and our job coaches.  As a result, we were able to pay an additional $2.50 per hour stipend for all hours worked in a residential home or on a business services contract through May 15, 2020.

Today, I am pleased to announce that NCIA has extended this additional stipend through June 14, 2020. That will be the end of our stimulus loan and we wanted to use the remainder to reward our employees.

Our employees are doing a phenomenal job working around the clock to fulfill NCIA’s mission — to care for those most in need, and everyone is doing a great job during challenging times.

Please know that all of our NCIA family appreciate your efforts.

Stay safe, and make sure you wear your masks, gloves and other protective equipment!

With continuing gratitude,

Herbert J. Hoelter

Chief Executive Officer
