Case Study of an Employment Program Serving People with Low Income: Business Link

This case study covers the Business Link program, housed in New York City’s Human Resources Administration.

Business Link develops connections with local businesses and helps them recruit, screen, and hire job candidates. The case study details where Business Link operates; whom it serves; what services are provided; how it is organized, staffed, and funded; and how it measures program participation and outcomes. The case study also discusses promising practices and remaining challenges.
