Public and Indian Housing Family Self-Sufficiency Program under the Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Program (PH FSS)
Anice Schervish Chenault
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.
FSS programs should increase the number of families who achieve self-sufficiency. Programs should also increase 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.
Eligible applicants are Public Housing Authorities
(PHAs), including Moving to Work (MTW) PHAs, and
tribes/Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) that
currently administer PH FSS programs or have HUD field
office/area ONAP approval of their FSS Action Plan
authorizing them to implement a PH FSS program.
