$100 Million to Create Jobs and Promote Self-Sufficiency for HUD-Assisted Families

Written by:

In the spirit of the president’s recently unveiled American Jobs Act, HUD is doing its part to create and keep jobs – and we’re doing so in a way that paves a path to a better life for families across the country.

Today, HUD announced nearly $100 million in grants to hire and retain service coordinators to promote self-sufficiency among those living in HUD-assisted housing. These case workers will help connect residents to jobs and support services and will help elderly and disabled community members maintain independent lifestyles. Not only do these grants empower families receiving HUD assistance, they will generate and preserve jobs nationwide. It’s just one example of how HUD is working for you – and helping to put your fellow Americans to work.

JUST HEARD THAT YOU ALLOWED HER BACK IN HER HOME…THAT’S MORE LIKE BEING AN AMERICAN !!! THANK YOU, WHOEVER MADE THE DECISION… JIM MAGDA

  2. HUD has taken a great initiative. Unemployment has made recession more miserable to survive. Creating jobs has become inevitable to balance the economy. This deal will help the assisted families to survive through the hard times.
