This study aimed at assessing solutions for improving occupational empowerment of rural female-headed households. Female-headed households in Shirvan (N=3287) formed the population of this descriptive-correlation study. The sample size was determined by using Cochran's formula (n=120)، and two-stage cluster sampling method was used for selecting samples. The validity of the questionnaire was approved by a panel of academic experts. Pre-test and calculation of Cronbach's alpha coefficients were used to measure the reliability (0. 75-0. 87). The data were analyzed using SPSS 20. The results showed that the main cause of women to be head of households was the death of their husbands; there had been covered 44. 20% of respondents by the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee (RA) and 5. 80% by the General Directorate of Social Welfare، and 50% had not been covered by any of the funding agencies. Using factor analysis method، solutions for improving occupational empowerment of rural female-headed households were catagorized into four factors including: training-supportive، individual-psychological، housing، job training، warranty and support through institutions، and social and health insurance. These factors could explain 60. 42% of the total variance of strategies to improve job empowerment of rural female-headed households.
