Who’s eligible to participate in Workforce Development?

The program is open to all adult residents of RHA’s public housing and rental assistance programs who are in good standing with RHA, looking to increase their earned income, create a savings account, further their education, open a business or find new employment opportunities.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Think about it. In five years, you could have a job you love, stable transportation, childcare you can afford and savings to use as a down payment on a home for your family. Those are goals Workforce Development can help you achieve.
