FY 2023 Jobs Plus NOFO

Program Description: HUD’s Jobs Plus program provides funding to develop 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. This place-based 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.

The Jobs Plus program model comprises these three core components (further described below):
      1. Employment-Related Services
      2. Financial/Rent Incentive – Jobs Plus Earned Income Disregard (JPEID)
      3. Community Support for Work

Applicants of this NOFO are encouraged to develop key partnerships to connect participants with any other needed services to remove barriers to work. An Individualized Training and Services Plan (ITSP) should be developed for each participant to establish goals and employment strategies, and to track progress.

Funding of approximately $22,500,000 is available through this NOFO. Subject to appropriations, HUD reserves the right to award fiscal year 2024 funds based on this NOFO competition.
