ProJo: Providence Housing providing jobs training for over 200 residents

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — More than 200 residents of the Hartford Parks and Manton Heights public housing developments have enrolled in Jobs Plus, a grant-funded program run by the Providence Housing Authority.

Staffers from the PHA, local officials and partners, and Jobs Plus participants met Thursday morning to mark the progress of the program, which launched in April.

The PHA received a four-year, $2.9-million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to run the Jobs Plus program. The PHA was one of 24 public housing authorities in the country selected for the competitive grant program.
