HUD has released their new in-depth guidebook providing practical information and guidance on how to run an effective Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program. The guide, Administering an Effective Family Self-Sufficiency Program: A Guidebook Based on Evidence and Promising Practices will benefit all service coordination programs (ROSS, FSS, Multi-Family FSS, Multi-Family Service Coordinators, Jobs Plus, Choice Neighborhoods “People” component and others), and also comes with and online FSS training. HUD recommends utilizing the “Get Credit” function of the training, as “it is possible that the training will be mandatory for eligibility for future FSS NOFA funding.”
HUD also announced the release of the Family Self-Sufficiency Guidebook for Owners of Project-Based Section 8 Developments and the new Multifamily FSS page on the HUD Exchange.
All resources can also be found on the FSS Resource Library page on HUD Exchange.
