Congratulations to the 60 CLPHA members  who received grants through HUD's Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program!

FSS grants help PHAs hire service coordinators who  connect residents with local programs and services. In HUD’s press release announcing the awards, Secretary Carson lauded the FSS program for helping HUD-assisted families achieve their dreams. “Working with our local partners, HUD is connecting families to educational opportunities, job training, childcare and other resources that allow them to get higher paying jobs and, ultimately, become self-sufficient,” said Carson.

The FSS program “encourages innovative strategies that link housing assistance with a broad spectrum of services that will enable participating families to find jobs, increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for rental and/or welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.”

CLPHA members received a combined total of $16.26 million in FSS grants, constituting nearly 22% of HUD's $74 million in funding awards.
