Tim Kaine on Welfare & Poverty

Democratic Senate Challenger; previously Governor

 


Family Self-Sufficiency program to reduce welfare dependency

More than $2 million in federal grants will soon be going to Virginia cities to help Virginia families reduce their dependency on welfare. Sen. Kaine announced that 19 Virginia localities will receive more than $2 million in federal grants, designated to help public housing residents reduce their dependency on welfare assistance and rental subsidies by providing tools and resources that will assist them in gaining job skills and increasing their earned income.

"These funds will help empower Virginia families to pull themselves out of poverty through educational opportunities, job training, and counseling," said Kaine.

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program, whose goal is to increase earned income and decrease welfare program dependency, administers the funds to local government housing entities. Then, once an eligible family is selected, a contract is established for a 5-7-year period that incorporates individualized training and outlines both short and long-term goals.
