Hire Local Plan

The Hire Local Plan’s goal is to help Austin improve affordability by improving economically disadvantaged residents’ access to better economic opportunities. We do this in four ways: raising awareness of these opportunities, enrolling residents in skills training, placing them in higher-paying jobs, and upskilling underemployed workers. By better preparing local workers for in-demand jobs, companies can fill their roles at a lower cost and the community can see economic benefits as a result. Learn more.
