Purpose

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program provides funding for public housing agencies and housing choice voucher programs to hire family self-sufficiency coordinators that will work with low-income people to increase their 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.

Examples of services may include financial literacy training, high quality child care (situational and long-term), transportation, behavioral healthcare coordination, and assistance with access to physical healthcare.
