Jobs plus grant award

Nickerson Gardens has received the largest HUD Jobs Plus program grant in the country! This $3.7 million, four-year funding commitment will provide a resource center and the Job Plus program to Nickerson Gardens residents.

The center is a one-stop-shop at Nickerson Gardens for everything from HACLA’s Youth Programs, the Community Safety Partnership, the Resident Advisory Committee office, computer lab, and now the augmented Jobs Plus program!

Jobs Plus will provide job training and placement in core industries such as healthcare, construction, hospitality, retail, and security. Additionally, residents have the opportunity to be hired as Community Coaches who will promote the programs to their neighbors right here on-site and help plan events.
