Youth Employment Program

Program (?) Youth Employment Program
Abbreviation YEP
Program Description

The Youth Employment Program was a joint program between HPD and the Department of Employment. It worked to fund local non-profits to train “at risk” youth in construction trades by participating in the construction of affordable housing. Participants worked to rehabilitate vacant in-rem buildings while simultaneously receiving remedial education and construction skills. After rehabilitation was complete, the buildings were sold to local non-profit sponsors for a below market-rate sales price, allowing them to rent completed units to homeless and low-income households.
