HUD Awards $54 million for Family Self-Sufficiency Program

Recently, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan announced that public housing agencies across the country will receive nearly $54 million to link low-income families with education and job training opportunities to put them on the path to self-sufficiency. Funded through the Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency Program (HCV/FSS), the grants allow public housing agencies (PHAs) to work with welfare agencies, schools, businesses, and other local partners to develop a comprehensive program to help individuals increase their earning potential and future job prospects.
