Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) is an employment-focused program available to individuals and families receiving Housing Choice Voucher or Public Housing assistance through Housing Connect. While enrolled in FSS, a participant works towards goals that will increase their independence and reduce their need for government assistance.
Family Self-Sufficiency can help you get the training and skills for the job you need and the career you want.
From updating your resume to furthering your education, we have programs available to help.
A Family Self-Sufficiency escrow account can help you save money for the future.
As your earned income increases, Housing Connect makes contributions to this account. The more your wages grow, the faster the escrow account grows. When your FSS contract is successfully complete, you will receive the remaining balance from the escrow account.
Would you like to own a home someday?
Family Self-Sufficiency can connect you with community partners to prepare for the challenges of owning a home, complete a HUD Certified HomeBuyer Education program, and learn about lending and down-payment assistance.
