Overview

To address the critical needs of citizens, DeKalb County has embarked on an ambitious plan that leverages public spending to provide opportunities for residents to secure gainful employment and grow small businesses.  ONE DeKalb Works is a public service, jobs initiative that will utilize the completion of $1.35 billion of water and sewer infrastructure improvements to cultivate a skilled workforce and promote local business contracting with government in order to get DeKalb County citizens back to work.

DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management, DeKalb County Department of Purchasing and Contracting, and DeKalb Workforce Development are implementing this local stimulus program in collaboration with national partner, the National Urban League, and local partners including Goodwill Industries and Georgia Piedmont Technical College.

As a result of these ground-breaking partnerships, ONE DeKalb Works will create up to 4,000 direct jobs per year at peak production, many of which will be set aside exclusively for DeKalb residents, and result in a total economic impact of $1.77 billion.
