Abstract:

This policy brief is one in a continuing series that offers emerging insights from the Jobs-Plus demonstration. Jobs-Plus is an intensive, “place-based” initiative for increasing employment among public housing residents. The Manpower Demonstration Research Corporation (MDRC) is managing the demonstration and evaluating the program. This brief describes the people and places Jobs-Plus is trying to help, and it outlines the demonstration’s principal goals and evolving strategies.
