Date Published:

CLPHA has signed onto a letter to HUD leadership, organized by Compass Capital, that provides recommendations to HUD for implementation of the increased Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) funding received in FY21. In FY21, FSS received $105 million, a 30% increase over FY20 funding. The recommendations include: 

  • Prioritize renewing all full-time and part-time coordinators funded in FY20, with appropriate adjustments for local staffing costs and cost of living increases; 
  • Use the additional funds to expand the program to PBRA properties; 
  • Use HUD’s authority provided through the Economic Growth Act to set aside up to 5 percent of funding for innovation and high performance, and to use allow those funds to be used flexibly for various FSS costs, including IT systems, participant incentives, program outreach, and staff training.
