Job Opportunities for Low-Income Individuals (JOLI) Grant
The purpose of the JOLI program is to provide technical and financial assistance to private employers in the community to assist them in creating employment and business opportunities for individuals receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and for other low-income individuals. Projects focus on one of three program strategies: self-employment/ micro-enterprise, new business ventures, and business expansion. Priority will be given to applicants proposing to serve those areas containing the highest percentage of individuals receiving TANF under a State program, which is funded under Part A of Title IV of the Social Security Act and individuals whose income level does not exceed 100 percent of the official poverty line.
