Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program

FSS coordinators collaborate with public and private agencies, assisting program participants as they work to obtain self-sufficiency through goal-setting and economic independence. Together with their assigned coordinators, residents establish an individualized training and services plan (ITSP) while working to accrue savings in a PHA-established escrow account. Participants can be any adult member of the household (Head of FSS Family) as designated by the family. The head of FSS family will sign a Contract of Participation (CoP). There is only one Contract of Participation per family.

Areas of Support

  • Childcare
  • Transportation
  • Education and training
  • Job search and retention
  • Financial planning, including credit counseling
  • Homeownership counseling
  • And more


The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is available to public housing residents or Housing Choice Voucher program participants. Current head of household and other adult family members who are willing and able to work are eligible to participate in the FSS Program.
