The Jobs-Plus program is a site-based, saturation model designed to raise and sustain the level of employment and earnings among residents of public housing developments. Jobs-Plus services are tailored to residents' individual needs and draw from a menu of on-site and referral services, working with both unemployed and employed residents. Initially designed by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and MDRC, and supported by a consortium of foundations, an earlier pilot produced positive impacts on residents' earnings during the four years of program operation and during an additional three-year follow-up period. Based on this evidence, in 2009 New York City established the first replication of Jobs-Plus in the nation.
SIF Jobs-Plus will be implemented in two cities by the following providers:
- BronxWorks (New York City, NY)
- San Antonio Housing Authority (San Antonio, TX)
CEO and the Mayor's Fund would like to thank their partners and supporters, including Bloomberg Philanthropies, Open Society Foundations, Morgan Stanley, The Rockefeller Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation, Catholic Charities of San Antonio, Goldman Sachs, the Kresge Foundation, Tiger Foundation and MDRC.
