Family Self Sufficiency

Family Self Sufficiency Program (FSS)

The Family  Self-Sufficiency Program is an optional program that is offered along with the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.  The FSS Program is a bold approach to helping families leave the welfare system or low-paying jobs to be able to better support their families financially.  Those participants who increase their income due to earned income will have an escrow account set aside for them. Participants will receive the monies from their escrow account if they complete their agreement within the five year period and are free from Welfare Assistance for a period of one year.
