The Jobs Plus program develops locally-based, job-driven approaches that increase earnings and advance employment outcomes through work readiness, employer linkages, job placement, educational advancement, technology skills, and financial literacy for residents of public housing. The place-based Jobs Plus program addresses poverty among public housing residents by incentivizing and enabling employment through earned income disregards for working residents and a set of services designed to support work including employer linkages, job placement and counseling, educational advancement, and financial counseling.

The Jobs Plus program comprises these three core components (further described below): Employment-Related Services Financial Incentives – Jobs Plus Earned Income Disregard (JPEID) Community Supports for Work Applicants are encouraged to develop ke...

Practically speaking, Aqua-Spark’s investment strategy is designed with the idea that…
We make initial investments of $290,000 to $5,800,000 in small-to-medium sized sustainable aquaculture businesses around the world.
We do not seek controlling stakes in our investees. We prefer to be a minority investor in the businesses we support, holding between 20 to 49 percent. We’ve chosen this tactic for two reasons: first, we feel the extra eyes and ears of other committed, engaged investors are a great asset to the investment as a whole, and, second, we want our entrepreneurs to have the flexibility to manage and grow their business on their own terms while also ensuring that we have enough influence should it be required.

ALIPH wishes to intervene worldwide, wherever applicants consider and can document the fact that heritage is at risk due to conflict. The notion of conflict is interpreted from a broad perspective to encompass interstate conflicts, civil wars, asymmetrical conflicts, terrorism, violent unrest and other sudden disruptions that lead to instability. Applicants must demonstrate that the heritage targeted was damaged because of conflict, is threatened by conflict or suffered collateral damage from conflict. In keeping with this conception, ALIPH is also willing to support a large notion of what represents cultural heritage, tangible but also intangible. The applicants will be asked to demonstrate the significance and value for local population or communities of the cultural heritage targeted by the grant.
