Loudoun Wins Family Self Sufficiency HUD Grant

Loudoun County has won a $67,326 grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development to increase income and decrease welfare dependency.

The department’s Family Self-Sufficiency Program involves five to seven year contracts with eligible families incorporating individualized training and short- and long-term goals. Resources and special services such as childcare, transportation, education, job training, employment counseling, financial literacy, and homeownership counseling are provided to families through service providers in the community.

“By giving individuals the tools they need to succeed, we help strengthen Virginia’s economy and reduce dependency on already-overburdened public assistance programs in our state,” said Senators Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) in a joint statement.
