Two events scheduled for later this week are meant to reduce financial burdens facing furloughed workers.
The Arlington Public Library system plans to host a workshop on Thursday (Jan. 17) to help furloughed federal employees with their budgets and access county resources.
Entitled “Finding Help During Difficult Financial Times,” the workshop will provide how-to’s on the following:
- creating or redoing your budget, with information from a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau financial coach
- applying for food stamps and Medicaid services available through Arlington County’s Department of Human Services
- taking advantage of food assistance from the Arlington Food Assistance Center
After the presentation, Latrice Robinson, a financial coach and contractor who is a part of the CFPB Financial Coaching Program, will be on hand to answer any questions, along with AFAC Client Services Manager Lily Duran and outreach staff from the Public Assistance Division in DHS.
The workshop will take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Barbara M. Donnellan Auditorium in the Central Library (1015 N. Quincy Street).
Arlington Public Schools also announced today (Tuesday) that it will hold a job fair on Friday (Jan. 18) for federal employees interested in substitute teaching.
The job fair will run from noon to 4 p.m. at the Syphax Education Center (2110 Washington Blvd). Participants should bring two forms of identification to the job fair and are encouraged to submit their application beforehand.
