Increase Job Readiness

Training and educational opportunities are available for many different occupations, here are just a few: CDL training, food services, welding, machining, healthcare, and many more!

Rent Incentives

If a Jobs-Plus member encourages another household to enroll in the program and anyone in the household whose name is on the lease starts working within six months after program completion, the referring participant will receive a $25 dollar rent credit.

In addition, while participating in the Jobs-Plus program, members are eligible to not have their rent increased due to an increase in earned income.
