HUD has released its Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) for FY 2019 Job Plus Grants. Applications must be submitted to HUD by October 1, 2019 via grants.gov. The Jobs Plus program develops “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. ”
PHAs that operate one or more public housing projects may apply. PHAs that have received a Commitment to enter into a Housing Assistance Payment Contract (CHAP) through the Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) may apply for a grant for the project so long as said project has not yet received a RAD Conversion Commitment (RCC). PHAs that received a Jobs Plus program grant for FY15, FY16, FY17, or FY18 are not eligible for FY19 grants.
