    FSS Program Information
     

    The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program assists qualifying regular and Family Unification Program (FUP) families enrolled in the Housing Choice Voucher Program to achieve economic independence, reducing the dependency of low-income families on federal, state or local welfare assistance as well as rent or homeownership subsidies including HCV Section public assistance.

    The FSS program empowers families to become self-sufficient through the removal of barriers and by increased access to education, employment opportunities and referrals to supportive services for barrier removal and home ownership preparation as noted below:

    • Through coordination with social service providers, workforce programs and other private/non-profit organizations to ensure that contracted families have better access to available services.
    • Through unique partnerships with the private sector, the FSS Program also incorporates wealth building curriculum's and individualized homeownership counseling to prepare families for independence through homeownership.

    For more information on our FSS and Homeownership Program please see our brochures:
