Grant Description

The purpose of the PH FSS program is to promote the development of local strategies to coordinate the use of assistance under the Public Housing program with public 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 Department will measure the success of local FSS programs not only by the number of families who achieve self-sufficiency, but also by the number of FSS families who, as a result of participation in the program, have family members who obtain their first job, or who obtain higher paying jobs; no longer need benefits received under one or more welfare program; obtain a high school diploma or higher education degree; or accomplish similar goals that will assist the family in obtaining economic independence. The FSS program and this PH FSS NOFA support the Departmentуs strategic goal of utilizing housing as a platform for improving quality of life by helping HUD-assisted renters increase economic security and self-sufficiency. The FSS program provides critical tools that can be used by communities to help families develop new skills that will lead to economic self-sufficiency. As a result of participation in the FSS program, many families have achieved stable, well-paid employment which has made it possible for them to become homeowners or move to other non-assisted housing.
