VIEW is a program of employment opportunities to assist individuals in attaining the goal of self-sufficiency assessment, counseling, and assistance for TANF recipients and others who are seeking employment.

VIEW program goals are to offer Virginians living in poverty the opportunities:

    a) To achieve economic independence by removing barriers and disincentives to work and by providing positive incentives to work;

    b) To provide work skills necessary for self-sufficiency;

     c) To allow families living in poverty to contribute materially to their own self-sufficiency;

    d) To set out the responsibilities of and expectations for recipients of public assistance;

     e) To obtain work experience through the Virginia Initiative for Employment Not Welfare (VIEW)

An applicant/recipient of TANF or TANF-UP must  participate in the VIEW program.
