Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) is a HUD program that allows HCV and public housing residents to build financial assets as the household increases income from wages. Participation generally lasts five years, during which participants identify educational, professional and personal goals such as:

  • educational advancement (e.g. GED or post-secondary)
  • completion of specialized job training
  • obtaining employment
  • career advancement
  • transitioning out of subsidized housing
  • homeownership

The FSS program involves goal setting, mentoring and financial incentives to empower families in making positive life changes.
