Employment First Nebraska’s Welfare Reform Program

Nebraska

~~“Employment First is the name of Nebraska’s welfare reform program.  The primary purpose of Employment First is to provide temporary, transitional support for Nebraska families so that economic self-sufficiency is attained in as expeditious a manner as possible through the provision of training, education, and employment preparation.  Nebraska is dedicated to improving the standard of living and quality of life for each family living in the State that has had to turn to public assistance to help support their family in times of need.  We will accomplish this by promoting personal responsibility and empowering parents to support their families.
