2022 Family Self-Sufficiency NOFO

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program supports the Department’s strategic goal of increasing economic opportunity for HUD-assisted families.

FSS provides grants to Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) to support the salaries and training needs of FSS Program Coordinators who assist participating

credit:


families receiving housing assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV/PBV) and Public Housing (PH) programs.

FSS Program Coordinators develop local strategies to connect participating families to public and private resources to increase their earned income and financial empowerment, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward economic independence and self-sufficiency.

PHAs and each individual participating family execute a five-year Contract of Participation that incorporates the responsibilities of each party, as well as a training and services plan to help the family become more self-sufficient.

PHAs are not permitted to limit FSS participation to those families most likely to succeed.

On May 24, 2018, The Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act became Public Law No:
115-17 4. Section 306 of the Act amended the United States Housing Act of 1937 to revise the FSS program.

The Act specifically changes program requirements related to program eligibility, escrow deposits, and supportive services; allows the Secretary to establish a funding formula; and extends eligibility for grant awards to private owners of project-based rental assistance (PBRA) properties.

The changes to the FSS program are not in effect until HUD issues implementing regulations.

Additional Information of Eligibility:

Eligible Applicants.

For Renewal Applicants - PHAs (including MTW PHAs) currently administering an FSS program that have met all funding requirements outlined in prior year Notice of Awards and Grant Agreements and the Terms and Conditions therein, see Appendix C. You will only be eligible for Renewal funding if you were funded under any of the FY 2021, FY 2020, and/or FY 2019 FSS NOFOs Please Note – PHAs that have repositioned all of their Public Housing stock in which FSS participants resided and do not serve HCV FSS participants are not eligible to apply for funding under this NOFO as renewal applicants, as, when their current funding ends, they will no longer meet the definition of “currently administering an FSS program.”  For example, your PHA has 60 PH units and no vouchers.  You have 18 FSS participants.  You reposition all the PH units where those 18 FSS participants live (for instance, you use RAD to convert all your family units to PBRA and all your FSS participants lived in family units.)  Due to the RAD notice, you can continue using your FY21 FSS NOFO funding through 12/31/22.  However, you no longer have a PH FSS program and you do not serve HCV FSS participants.  After 12/31/22, your PHA will no longer administer an FSS program (even if you, as the PBRA owner, are serving those RAD-affected FSS participants).

Thus, you are not eligible for renewal funding under this FY22 NOFO.

  For New Applicants – PHAs that have not been funded for an FSS grant in any of the last 3 years (FY21, FY20, FY19) and PBRA owners already implementing or wishing to implement an FSS program are eligible for funding under Category 4 of this NOFO.

Individuals, foreign entities, and sole proprietorship organizations are not eligible to compete for, or receive, awards made under this announcement.
