Financial Incentives

Jobs Plus  also offers incentives for getting and sticking with a job. By signing up for Jobs Plus, residents become eligible for Jobs Plus Earned Income Disregard (JPEID) When a resident is on JPEID, 0 percent of their wages from new employment or an increase in earnings at current employment are counted when calculating rent. This means that residents’ rents will not increase because of an increase in earned income. Financial coaching and training will be available to all participants. Jobs Plus staff will 100% empowerment as residents move their way up in the career of their choice and on their way to earning higher wages and becoming financially independent.

Jobs Plus helped build my confidence back up.

Jobs Plus can help you become successful and a better version of yourself.

I have always been a person who works, but I hit a rough patch and was out of work for a period of time. Jobs Plus coaches just so happened to contact me at a time when I was ready to get back to work. I was referred to Goodwill for job search assistance and eventually started working. Because of the JPEID incentive I have bought my very first brand-new car and can put away savings towards becoming a homeowner.

Jobs Plus helped me a lot. The program helped me socialize with more people and now I can get a job because I'm not scared to socialize with people.

Don't let anything stop you. I was able to do it with five kids!
