Family Self- Sufficiency program to be implemented in PCHA’s Public Housing communities

PINELLAS COUNTY, FLORIDA – HUD recently awarded the PCHA with funding for a Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) Coordinator. This funding will allow for the implementation of the FSS Program in PCHA’s public housing communities. Through the FSS program,  PCHA will work directly with residents to connect them with local education and training opportunities; job placement organizations; and local employers.  Each participating family will sign an FSS Contract of Participation and will identify their goals and the steps necessary to achieve their goals.

The purpose of the program is to encourage innovative strategies that link public housing assistance with other resources to enable participating families to increase income from employment; reduce or substantially eliminate the need for welfare assistance; and make progress toward achieving economic independence and self-sufficiency.
