 HUD Announces $24 Million in Grants for Jobs Plus Pilot Program for Public Housing Agencies 
     The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has published a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) of $24 million in grants for its Jobs Plus Pilot Program for public housing agencies to cultivate locally-based methods to grow incomes and employment for their residents. According to the notice, “The NOFA will fund initiatives to advance employment and earnings outcomes for Public Housing residents through supports such as work readiness, employer linkages, job placement and financial literacy.”
     These grants will focus on the president’s  job-driven training checklist principals—labor market data, career pathways, work experience, access to training, and key partnerships— to ensure that public housing residents are connected to programs with the most accurate and updated job-seeker practices.
