“It is my hope that iApplied will reduce government staff workloads, encourage unemployment beneficiaries to apply for jobs and ultimately make more efficient use of taxpayer dollars,” said Tyron Foston of Park Forest, who developed iApplied. “If it improves unemployment benefit operations in Illinois, iApplied could be adopted by other states around the nation.”
Foston decided to create iApplied after speaking with some of his unemployed friends and realizing a need for a more effective, streamlined system to verify eligibility for unemployment benefits. He consulted with businesses and municipal employees who provided positive feedback on the tool. Foston plans to use the award money to further develop iApplied to bring it to market.
