OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has announced a $580,000 grant to help low-income residents in Oklahoma receive job training and find employment.

The agency announced the award Tuesday to the Oklahoma Finance Agency and housing authorities in five cities. HUD’s Family Self-Sufficiency Program funded the grant that helps public housing residents connect with existing services in their communities to improve their education or help find employment.

Participants in the program sign a five-year contract that requires the head of household to be employed and no longer receive cash welfare assistance within five years.
