About the FSS Program

The Section 8 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program helps families to reach economic self-sufficiency by providing referrals for supportive services such as job training/education, child care, transportation assistance, budget/debt counseling and more.

The FSS program is a self-paced program. Participants help to determine their short and long-term goals and we will help them to find the resources needed to achieve their goals.

Participants will not lose their Section 8 rental assistance if they enroll in the FSS Program and are not able to complete their FSS goals. 

If you are ready to start working toward a better life amd would like us to assist you, please contact your Housing Specialist and sign up to attend an FSS orientation or click here for more information.

How the Program helps participants


The FSS program also offers a unique opportunity for you to save money.  FSS participants are eligible for a savings or escrow account when they have an increase in their earned income (wages).  The escrow account accrues and increases as the participant portion of the rent increases due to an increase in earned income.  Monthly deposits are made to the participants escrow account and earn interest.  Upon graduation from the FSS Program, participants receive all of the money in their escrow account to use however they wish.
