There is hope for the unemployed Illinois.  Governor Pat Quinn Monday unveiled the "Put Illinois to Work" program, an anti-poverty program aimed at building a healthy workforce by putting unemployed residents back to work. The new program is expected to create more than 15,000 jobs.

"The program will also assist in building a workforce that possesses the skills, abilities and experience that Illinois employers need to remain competitive in the U.S. and global marketplace," said Governor Quinn.

Put Illinois to Work is a collaborative effort of the Illinois Department of Human Services, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity and Heartland Human Care Services. Funding is provided through stimulus money through the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Emergency Contingency Fund, which was created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

Eligible Illinois residents will be placed in subsidized employment positions with participating worksites for up to six months. Private, public and non-profit businesses are encouraged to sign on with Put Illinois to Work. Eligible participants will be matched to subsidized employment opportunities with these worksites in hopes that they might transition into an unsubsidized position at the program's conclusion.

Eligible work sites and participants must meet program criteria and agree to adhere to specific requirements. All participants must have a household income below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level ($2,428 per month for a family of two) and be legally present and authorized to work.
