and income of public housing residents.

The program provides intensive, employment-focused programs targeting every able-bodied, working-age welfare recipient at a public housing development.

The place-based Jobs Plus Pilot program addresses entrenched poverty among public housing residents by saturating developments with job and career support, community building, and rent-based work incentives.

This program helps residents of public housing increase their earnings through on-site employment-related services, financial incentives, and community support for work.

The Jobs Plus Pilot program consists of the following three core components: Employment-Related Services, Financial Incentives, and Community Support for Work.
