AMP Up Boston is a free three-year program for residents of the Boston Housing Authority. The program can give participants support to get a good-paying job or manage their money. If participants are eligible and are admitted to the program based on availability, they will meet with their mentor regularly to set goals and get support. They can earn up to $700 a year for making progress on their goals.

AMP Up Boston is operated by EMPath, with support from the Boston Housing Authority (BHA). EMPath is also partnering with lead researcher Lawrence Katz at Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to better understand the program.
