Opportunity Corridor Jobs Program
OMJ|CC NEIGHBORHOOD FOCUS FOR JOBS INITIATIVE
The Cleveland-Cuyahoga County Workforce Development Board has adopted a place-based neighborhood jobs strategy designed to target additional staff and resources to two Cleveland neighborhoods with low Labor Force Participation Rates – Slavic Village (Cleveland City Council Ward 12 primarily) and the Opportunity Corridor (Cleveland City Council Wards 4, 5 and 6). The Labor Force Participation Rate is the percentage of people over age 16 who are working or are looking for a job. Cuyahoga County’s rate is approximately 63%. The selected neighborhoods are approximately 58%. The goal is to increase the number of residents who are in the labor force in Slavic Village and the Opportunity Corridor. Achieving this would have a positive impact on the local economy by putting more dollars into residents’ pockets for them to spend in their own neighborhoods.
Employers are looking for qualified individuals to fill vacancies in good, middle-skill jobs that require some training but not a college degree. Jobs like Machinists, Construction Laborers, Nurses, Computer Analysts, and Police Officers are examples of the thirty in-demand opportunity occupations in our area that pay more than other entry-level jobs and connect to career pathways and better wages. For individual residents, funds are available to support the training programs offered to acquire the skills and credentials needed for these jobs. For businesses, services to recruit qualified candidates for open jobs and funds for On-The-Job training programs are also available. These services are available for free through Ohio Means Jobs| Cleveland-Cuyahoga County.
