"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.
