The FSS Program
The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program is an employment and savings incentive program offered to residents of THHA's Section 8 and Public Housing. Working as a team, the participants and an FSS Coordinator identify and eliminate obstacles to financial independence and self-sufficiency. This program helps tenants set goals of furthering their education, gaining employment skills, obtaining employment, financial management and homeownership. FSS is a five year program that offers the opportunity for participating residents to build an escrow (savings) account as their earned income increases.
