Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program

About the Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is an innovative voluntary program that helps Section 8 participants and Public Housing residents achieve economic independence over a 5-year period. Participants work with an FSS Coordinator to assess their strengths, identify barriers, set goals, and achieve them.

What areas does the program cover?

Money Management
Job Readiness
Home Ownership
Child Care
Credit Counseling

How does this savings account work?

Normally, when income increases and you live in subsidized housing, your rent will increase. However, if you participate in the FSS Program and your earned income increases, PHA will put a portion of your rent increase into an interest building escrow savings account.

What are the benefits to you and your family?

Through the FSS Program, you can develop your skills and gain the training you need to achieve economic independence. With your FSS Coordinator as your advocate, you and other adult family members will access the resources you need to achieve short-term and long-term goals.
