US Department of Housing and Urban Development and US Department of Labor Partnership
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009. The Recovery Act is intended to preserve and create jobs, promote the nation’s economic recovery, and assist those most impacted by the recession. Under the Recovery Act, Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) will receive funding to improve the energy efficiency of public housing units across the country. On May 26th Secretary Shaun Donovan of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis issued a joint letter announcing the establishment of a pilot program to link public housing residents with their local Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and its One Stop Career System. This notice is intended to alert the workforce investment system to the partnership between HUD and the Department of Labor (DOL) and to be prepared to work with representatives from local Public Housing Agencies and connect public housing residents to One Stop Career Centers.
