Dept. of Housing and Urban Development - Jobs Plus Initiative. Due 7/29. $16.7M Available.
Jobs Plus Initiative
The Jobs Plus program develops locally-based, job-driven approaches that increase earnings and advance employment outcomes through work readiness, employer linkages, job placement, educational advancement, technology skills, and financial literacy for residents of public housing. The place-based Jobs Plus program addresses poverty among public housing residents by incentivizing and enabling employment through earned income disregards for working residents and a set of services designed to support work including employer linkages, job placement and counseling, educational advancement, and financial counseling. Ideally, the Jobs Plus Program will “saturate” the target public housing projects (AMPs) with information, services and incentives intended to support resident employment during the program and encourage continued resident employment beyond the end of the program cycle.
Eligible applicants are only public housing authorities (PHAs) that operate one or more public housing projects that meet the criteria outlined in this NOFO. PHAs that received a Jobs Plus program grant for FY 2017, FY 2018, FY 2019, or FY2020-2021 are not eligible for FY 2022 grant funds. PHAs that received FY 2014, FY 2015, or FY 2016 Jobs Plus grants may apply for funding under this NOFO. However, public housing projects (AMP’s) previously funded through a FY 2014, FY 2015, or FY 2016 Jobs Plus grant may not be the target of an FY 2022 Jobs Plus application. Federally recognized tribes and tribally designated housing entities are not eligible applicants for this NOFO. Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.
