The purpose of this Request for Proposals (RFP) is to solicit proposals for proven service approaches and strategies that help participants of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families or TANF (current and former TANF clients – including those with multiple barriers to becoming employed) prepare to enter, succeed, and advance in the workplace. The intent is to provide resources to expand and enhance existing service delivery efforts that address more fully the needs of the target population prior to their entry into work and during employment. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) intends for the key outcomes of this initiative to be increased job placement, increased job retention, higher entry-level employment wages and increased wage gains with job advancement over time for clients who receive services from this project.
