Our job access strategy focuses on:
- Bringing jobs to people: Target investment in job hubs and job corridors throughout the state, particularly those closer to where concentrations of people live or those that leverage existing infrastructure and transportation assets. Also support the development of equitable investment parameters for Opportunity Funds.
- Connecting people to jobs: Support increased state investment in public transit, and pioneering public/private innovation in worker mobility through emerging transportation models (Uber, Chariot, Lyft, and others) that increase access to job hubs.
In June of 2019, to better connect people to jobs, the Fund, along with the National Fund for Workforce Solutions, Greater Cleveland Partnership, The Lozick Family Foundation, and DriveOhio, will launch The Paradox Prize, an up to $1 million public challenge to invest in big ideas that improve the mobility of Northeast Ohio's workers.
