Statutory Objectives

Three statutory objectives guide the MTW demonstration program:

  • Reduce cost and achieve greater cost effectiveness in federal expenditures
  • Give incentives to families with children where the head of household is working, seeking work, or is preparing for work by participating in job training, educational programs, or programs that assist people to obtain employment and become economically self-sufficient
  • Increase housing choices for eligible low-income families

Each year, MTW agencies must describe how they will address the statutory objectives in the MTW Supplement. Detailed instructions for completing the MTW Supplement will be discussed in the Program Administration section of this training (coming soon).
