The Jobs Initiative was instituted in 2011 and 2012 to stimulate job creation in City Heights during the economic downturn.
Price Philanthropies gave grants to several nonprofits servicing City Heights to hire City Heights residents. The initiative increased services to families, bolstered nonprofit capacity, and provided jobs for residents. In total, the Jobs Initiative created more than 70 jobs.
The program sunsetted in 2013 as nonprofits were able to absorb the jobs inhouse and the economy began to improve.back to top
