Results of the Investment
Jobs Created and/or Retained: Total of jobs created and retained at the time of this report. Jobs Generally: Only
permanent and direct jobs may be counted. Part-time jobs should be converted to full-time equivalents (sum the total part-
time hours worked per week and divide by the hourly work week for full-time employees, normally 35-40 hours). Jobs
Created: Private sector jobs created by businesses and other project beneﬁciaries as a result of this NBRC investment. Jobs
Retained: Private sector jobs retained as a result of this NBRC investment. Direct Jobs: Include those created or retained by
employers located at the project site or by ﬁrms that require services of the NBRC-funded facility in order to locate, expand or
operate in the project area. Recipients should report other direct or directly related jobs, including subsequent employers that
locate or expand in the project area as a result of the project. For some projects (e.g., roads, water and sewer lines), direct
jobs may include those created by ﬁrms that were not originally anticipated as part of the project; however the ﬁrms required
the facility or service provided by the NBRC investment in order to locate or expand in the area. For RLF reporting: Actual
Created Jobs are the result of and attributable to the RLF loan, and have been veriﬁed by the borrower. A created job must be
removed if the job fails to last 18 months. For loans paid in full, borrowers may use the job data on ﬁle provided there is
conﬁdence in the reliability of the data. If there is a question on reliability, the data should be veriﬁed by the next reporting
period. Retained Jobs are existing jobs where it can be documented that without the RLF assistance, the jobs would have
been lost. Job creation and retention numbers are actual jobs, not estimates or based on studies of similar projects.
