Transitional Jobs program receives $10,000 CDBG grant

Meridian is excited to announce the award of $10,000 for our Transitional Jobs Program! Funding was provided by the Community Urban Development Block Grant (CDBG), a program run by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This grant provides resources to organizations that address pressing needs in their communities. At the July 12 County Commission meeting, Meridian’s grant request for its Transitional Jobs program, a subset of Supportive Employment services was granted! This year, organizations could request a minimum of $10,000, up from $5,000 in 2015. The increase in funds made the process more competitive than previous years. This grant, which goes into effect in October, will allow the Supportive Employment program to employ more of our clients as part-time transitional workers, right here on campus. Clients participating in this program receive on-the-job training and support in a familiar environment while working toward the eventual transition into community employment. They will work approximately two to four hours each week and will receive continued support and encouragement while job searching in the community. Jessica Wells, Meridian Job Coach, stated “the program would allow participants a chance to build up self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth through allowing them the chance to learn employable skills with on-the-job training and experience in a comforting and supportive environment.” We’d like to extend our appreciation to the City of Gainesville for the grant!
