$60 Million Available to Cover Coordinator Cost

HUD offers $60 million in grants through the Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency (HCV FSS) Program, setting an April 24 application deadline. The funding covers the salaries of HCV FSS program coordinators during FY 2012.


Public housing agencies (PHAs) administering a HCV FSS program or having HUD field office approval of an FSS Action Plan authorizing implementation of an HCV FSS program are eligible.

HCV FSS promotes coordinated efforts using public and private resources enabling families to increase income and financial literacy, reduce or eliminate welfare assistance and become self-sufficient. Funding priorities are given to programs already operating that meet HUD performance standards. Any funding remaining could be directed to PHAs seeking to establish new programs.
