HUD has released a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for the Jobs Plus Pilot Initiative, a program which will provide eligible public housing authorities with funds to improve employment and earnings outcomes for public housing residents through employment-related services, financial incentives, and community supports for work.
HUD estimates that 8 awards will be made nationally, for $1M-$3M over a 4-year period. Grantees’ programs will be subject to an independent evaluation funded by HUD. A list of eligible public housing developments is included in the NOFA. Applications are due on 9/28/15. More information available here.
