Virginia Initiative for Education and Work (VIEW)

VIEW is a program of employment, education, and training opportunities to assist individuals in attaining the goal of economic independence. The Program Goals are to offer Virginians living in poverty the opportunity to:

  • Achieve economic independence by removing barriers and disincentives to work and by providing incentives to work.

  • Provide work skills necessary for self-sufficiency.

  • Allow families living in poverty to contribute materially to their own self-sufficiency.

  • Set out the responsibilities of and expectations for recipients of public assistance; and

  • Obtain work experience through the various employment, education, and training components of the VIEW program.

Recipients of TANF and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families - Unemployed Parent (TANF-UP) benefits, must participate in the VIEW program as a condition of eligibility, unless otherwise exempt. The TANF-UP program is intended to provide assistance to families with two able-bodied parents.
