Work opportunities are available for those people who were displaced by the COVID-19 pandemic through the county’s Rise to Work program. In addition to helping workers, employers looking to hire short-term workers can use the program as well. Mayor Kawakami said this is an opportunity for both local nonprofits and businesses and Kaua’i residents. Jobs will start this month and extend for 12 weeks.
