Purpose

Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and Public Housing (PH) Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Programs promote local strategies to coordinate HUD assistance and private resources to enable participating families to increase earned income and financial literacy, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward economic independence and self-sufficiency.

The FSS program provides tools that can be used by communities to help families develop new skills that will lead to economic self-sufficiency. In addition to working directly with families, FSS Program Coordinators are responsible for building partnership with employers and service providers in the community to help participants access jobs and services.

Eligibility

The 2018 funding announcement is a renewal for currently funded programs that met their service goals in the last budget year.

Eligible applicants are Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and Indian Tribes/Tribally Designated Housing Entities that currently administer a HCV or PH FSS program.

For this funding round, HUD will only fund applicants currently administering an FSS program that was funded in FY 2014, FY 2015, and/or FY 2016 or received an FSS program through a transfer or consolidation from a Public Housing Agency that was funded.
