This Notice announces the availability of funding of approximately $75 million for salaries of program coordinators for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program. The purpose of the FSS program is to promote the development of local strategies to coordinate the use of assistance under the HCV and PH programs with public and private resources to enable participating families to increase earned income and financial literacy, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward economic independence and self-sufficiency. PHAs or tribes/Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) that administer FSS programs enter into five-year contracts with new families on an ongoing basis. The FSS contract spells out the terms and conditions governing participation and the responsibilities of both the PHA (or tribe/TDHE) and the family. As required by the FSS statute and regulations, each FSS program reflects local needs and resources. PHAs are not permitted to limit FSS participation to those families most likely to succeed because of current education level or job history.
