The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) and the Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) Neighborhood Clean-Up (NCU) Transitional Job program model prepares returning citizens – individuals who have served prison terms, are transitioning from incarceration, and/or have an arrest or conviction record – for full-time employment at or above the City’s minimum wage. Central to the NCU Transitional Job program model are career navigation, support services, and temporary subsidized jobs that stabilize participants with a source of income and are integrated with career navigation services that help participants access training and develop skills that are aligned with their long-term career interests.


DFSS anticipates awarding one contract with an estimated award range of $825,000-$1,075,000 per year depending on funding availability. Continued support will be dependent upon the Respondent’s performance and the continued availability of funding.  This contract will operate on a reimbursement basis only. No advances will be given.
