Family self-sufficiency (FSS) is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) program to help HCV program families obtain employment that will lead to economic independence and self-sufficiency.
Public housing agencies work with welfare agencies, schools, businesses, and other local partners to develop a comprehensive program that gives participating FSS family members the skills and experience to enable them to obtain employment that pays a living wage.
Participation in FSS is voluntary and is open to current participants in the HCV program. The selection process is “first-come, first-served”, based upon date and time interest is expressed, until all mandatory slots have been filled. Voluntary termination of participation in the FSS program will not jeopardize participation in the HCV program.
