The NLLD – SMR scheme is a temporary subsidy scheme of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment and is part of an accompanying temporary crisis package for which another €70 million has been made available.
This crisis package consists of development advice, guidance towards work, training and the provision of EVC procedures and is supported by a campaign in collaboration with stakeholders. This is done to bring the package to the attention of workers, self-employed entrepreneurs and job seekers.
With this temporary arrangement, partnerships of sectors, employers' associations, employee associations, R&D funds and other stakeholders can offer development advice, guidance to work, training and EVC procedures free of charge to participants who have a connection with the Dutch labor market and apply for a subsidy for this. An activity or a combination of these activities can be offered in a trajectory. The purpose of offering these programs free of charge is to facilitate and stimulate the retention of work or transition to other work for participants.
The eligible activities are:
A. Giving development advice to a working person:
each development consulting activity has a value of at least €700
B. Providing guidance to other work for a worker:
category I supervision: €500 per supervision activity; category II supervision: €1,000 per supervision activity.
C. Training a working person:
category C 1 training: €75 per training; category C 2 training: €150 per training; category C 3 training: €500 per training; category C 4 training: €1,250 per training.
D. Taking care of an EVC procedure for a working person:
€1,250 per EVC trajectory.
