Community Partnerships in Hotel Employment and The Customer Service Skills Center Programs to Receive Urban Enterprise Zone Funding
November 7, 2011, Jersey City, NJ â€” Two successful programs that train and place Jersey City residents in service-industry jobs are being funded to continue their work for the next year. As a result of the support of Mayor Healy and his administration, and the vote of the Jersey City Municipal Council last week, Community Partnerships in Hotel Employment and The Customer Service Skills Center will again be recipients of funding from the Jersey City Economic Development Corporationâ€™s Urban Enterprise Zone (UEZ) Program.
Â â€œThese are two programs that not only provide the men and women of Jersey City with training, counseling, and skills, but they also place our residents in good-paying jobs and help them retain those jobs,â€ said Mayor Healy. â€œIn turn, these programs are vital to providing the hospitality and customer-service industries here in Jersey City with the qualified workforce they need to succeed.â€
