Self Sufficiency is an individual’s ability to support their household by maintaining financial,

housing,and personal/family stability.

To achieve self-sufficiency, an individual moves along a continuum towards economic independence and stability; such movement is facilitated by the achievement of personal goals.

To help residents make progress towards economic self-sufficiency, HUD provides ROSS-SC grant funding to eligible applicants to hire a Service Coordinator who assesses the needs of Public and Indian housing residents and links them to supportive services that enable participants to move along a continuum towards economic independence and stability.

In the case of elderly/disabled residents, the Service Coordinator links them to supportive services which enables them to age/remain in place.

This program also works to promote the development of local strategies to coordinate the use of assistance under the Public Housing program with public and private resources, for supportive and resident empowerment activities.

ROSS-SC funds may be used for coordinator’s salary and fringe benefits, travel and training expenses, and administrative costs.
