The Job Opportunity for Low-Income Individuals (JOLI) program will support business development and expansion opportunities, including micro-enterprise and self-employment opportunities, in an effort to help Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) recipients and other low-income individuals achieve economic self-sufficiency.
JOLI grantees create jobs by providing technical and financial assistance to private employers in the community in order to create sustainable employment and business opportunities
Financial assistance to low-income individuals may be provided through the use of revolving loan funds or direct cash assistance to a micro-enterprise or self-employed business owner.
Funded projects should focus on one of the following three program strategies:
OCS will strongly encourage applicants to propose projects that support child care and early childhood education, as such projects create jobs for low-income participants and support other working families. In addition, OCS would encourage projects that coordinate support services for participants with a program that provides Individual Development Accounts.
Eligible applicants will be accepted from nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) or a 501(c)(4) status with the IRS, organizations, other than institutions of higher education.
Number of Awards: 4
