Family Self-Sufficiency Program - Renewal MODIFICATION

This Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) announces the availability of funding for salaries of program coordinators for the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD’s) Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program.

Program Overview:
The Family Self-Sufficiency


(FSS) program supports the Department’s strategic goal of increasing economic opportunity for HUD-assisted families.

FSS provides grants to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) and tribes/Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) to support the salaries and training needs of FSS Program Coordinators who assist participating families receiving housing assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV/PVB), Public Housing (PH) and Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act (NAHASDA) programs.

FSS Program Coordinators develop local strategies to connect participating families to public and private resources to increase their earned income and financial literacy, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward economic independence and self-sufficiency.

PHAs (or tribes/TDHEs) and each individual participating family execute a five-year contract that incorporates the responsibilities of each party, as well as a training and services plan to help the family become more self-sufficient.

PHAs and tribes/TDHEs are not permitted to limit FSS participation to those families most likely to succeed.
