Family Self Sufficiency Program

 

Since 1993, LHA has offered the FSS Program to families in either the Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher Programs.   The program helps families work toward becoming financially self-sufficient.   Each family works with a caseworker to develop an individual plan for up to a  5 year period.   The plan includes the steps that the family will take to reach their goals and the support or help they might need.  Families who reach their goals may receive an escrow savings account which is based on deposits made following increases in rent resulting from increases in earned income for the household.   Support services include case management & financial assistance.
