The purpose of the ROSS Service Coordinator program is to provide funding to hire and maintain Service Coordinators who will assess the needs of residents of conventional Public Housing or Indian housing and coordinate available resources in the community to meet those needs.
The ultimate goal
of a Family Service Coordinator is to assist families to increase earned income and move towards economic and housing self-sufficiency.
The ultimate goal of an Elderly/Disabled Service Coordinator is to ensure that residents can maintain independent living and age-in-place in their units and avoid placement in a full-care facility to the greatest extent possible.
Applicants will indicate if their Service Coordinators will serve families, elderly residents, or a mix of both.
