The Hammond Urban Enterprise
Association is greatly concerned with higher education and
community-based employment of Enterprise Zone youth. To
this end, we offer opportunities for Zone youth such as
collegiate scholarships, and
the Hammond Youth Employment Program,
which provides over 100 jobs per year to young people living
in the Zone. These programs foster young adult development
and provide support to local businesses.
In our commitment to making
Hammond a better place to live, the HUEA will subsidize
and install "Welcome Lights"
for any Zone resident who completes the necessary application.
We hope that this program will keep the city of Hammond
and its Enterprise Zone beautiful and crime free, and these
electric, sunlight-sensitive lights offer comfort and security
to our neighborhoods.
The HUEA also offers a "Transportation to Work"
Program, which gives a transportation subsidy to residents
with disabilities, making it possible for disabled adults
who reside in Hammond to continue to be a vital part of
the community's workforce.
With HUEA and community
members working together, we can beautify neighborhoods,
fund education and social activities, and provide grant
opportunities to stimulate our city's beauty and economic
development. Please contact us for more information; we
look forward to working with you.
