Family Self-Sufficiency

Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) is a program initiated and funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. It provides HUD housing assistance combined with access to community resources and an opportunity to establish an escrow savings account to participants interested in becoming self-sufficient. The basic premise for this program is that housing can be an insurmountable obstacle for a family. Providing housing assistance permits a family to invest their energy in other efforts – job training, education, and employment – that are necessary to achieve self-sufficiency. This program is designed for Section 8 Participants.
