Program 15:  Family Self-Sufficiency Program

This program provides opportunities for Section 8 recipients and public housing residents to engage in job training, personal development, and educational programs. As a result of this program, participants seek and obtain initial or promotional employment opportunities. The program is based on the principle of economic independence. Families paying higher rent due to an increase in earned income are credited with respective proportions of the program escrow account. Participants earn their portion of the escrow account by remaining free of public assistance for 12 consecutive months and by reaching their individual goals.
