Community Board: Manhattan Community District 9
Provide, expand, or enhance job search and placement support
Maintain funding for job training and placement for adults within CD9
Responsible Agency : Department of Social Services
OMB supports the agency's position as follows: In November 2016, HRA announced contract awards for 3 employment programs -- CareerCompass, YouthPathways, and CareerAdvance. The employment programs leave behind the one-size-fits-all approach of the past to offer services that take into account individual needs of HRA clients while providing specialized services for youth, individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP), and other groups with specific needs. The new service model will connect individuals on cash assistance with the jobs, training or education that help them build a career and become financially independent.
