1. Additional Information on Eligibility: eligible applicants are PHAs (including Moving to Work (MTW) PHAs) and Indian tribes/TDHEs currently administering an FSS program, that have served at least the minimum number of families required by this NOFA (as described in Section III.C.3.c below; "Eligibility Requirement: Number of FSS families served") and have met all other funding requirements. Due to the level of funding available under this NOFA, you will only be eligible for funding under this NOFA if you meet one of the following criteria: you were funded under any of the FY 2013, FY 2014, and/or the FY 2015 FSS NOFAs, or you received an FSS program through a transfer or consolidation from a PHA that was funded under such NOFAs. See Appendix D for a list of applicants who meet the criteria set forth in the bullet points above. 2. Funding Distribution. Funding will be awarded in the following order, as funds allow: Category 1 - Renewal positions (i.e., positions funded under any of the FY 2013, FY 2014, and/or the FY 2015 FSS NOFAs). Category 2 - A small set of PHAs will be eligible to apply for funding to increase from a part-time renewal position to a full-time position. Applicants who are eligible to apply under this category are identified under the “Cat. 2 Eligible” column in Appendix D. However, please note that some applicants which may be identified in Appendix D as ineligible under this funding category may become eligible after PIC data is re-pulled 60 days after publication of this NOFA as explained in Section V.B.3 "Funding Priority Categories" of this NOFA. Category 3 - New FSS coordinator positions (positions that were not funded in FY 2013, FY 2014, or FY 2015) for renewal applicants. For more information, see Section V.B.3 of this NOFA "Funding Priority Categories".

Grant Description

This NOFA announces the availability of funding of approximately $75 million for salaries of program coordinators for the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD’s) Fiscal Year (FY) 2016 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program. Due to the level of funding available, the Department will only fund applicants currently administering an FSS program that also meet one of the following criteria: a. you were funded under any of the FY 2013, FY 2014, and/or the FY 2015 FSS NOFAs; or b. you received an FSS program through a transfer or consolidation from a Public Housing Agency (PHA) that was funded under these NOFAs. See Section V.B.3 "Funding Priority Categories" for more information on the order in which funding will be awarded. Starting in FY2014, funding for FSS coordinators that serve Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) participants and/or Public Housing (PH) participants is made available under one NOFA; there are no longer two separate NOFAs for the HCV FSS program and the PH FSS program. This means that if you submitted two separate applications in previous years, (one for HCV FSS and one for PH FSS) you will only submit one application under this NOFA. As stated in the General Section, applicants that fail to submit their application through for whatever reason, including failure to update their DUNS, SAM or registration or Authorized Organizational Representatives (AORs) will not be considered for funding.
