Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) is a program established by a PHA/IHA within its jurisdiction to promote self-sufficiency among participating families, including the provision of supportive services to those families.
The FSS Program promotes the development of local strategies, integrates programs, coordinates public and private resources to enable low-income families to achieve economic independence and self-sufficiency.
The program is designed to encourage communities to coordinate resources in a comprehensive way and to move low-income families receiving housing assistance up and out into the economic main stream.
FSS utilizes various resources including education, training, employment, child care, and housing to develop upper mobility off of welfare systems and into stable economic conditions.
