HUD AWARDS $74 MILLION TO HELP FAMILIES REACH SELF-SUFFICIENCY
Federal funding to support education and employment among HUD-assisted families
 

WASHINGTON - U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson today awarded $74 million to hundreds of public housing authorities across the country to continue helping public housing residents participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program and/or reside in public housing to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on public assistance and rental subsidies. Read more about the local impact of the grants announced today.

These grants renew HUD’s support of 688 public housing authorities through the Department’s Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS)) program. HUD’s FSS program helps local public housing authorities hire service coordinators who work directly with residents to connect them with programs and services that already exist in the local community. The FSS program encourages innovative strategies that link housing assistance with a broad spectrum of services that will enable participating families to find jobs, increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for rental and/or welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.

“One of the most important things we can do as public servants is to help HUD-assisted families achieve their dreams,” said Secretary Carson. “Working with our local partners, HUD is connecting families to educational opportunities, job training, childcare and other resources that allow them to get higher paying jobs and, ultimately, become self-sufficient.”

FSS participants sign a five-year contract that requires the head of the household to obtain employment and that no member of the household will receive certain types of public assistance at the end of the five-year term. These families have an interest-bearing escrow account established for them. The amount credited to the family's escrow account is based on increases in the family's earned income during the term of the FSS contract. If the family successfully completes its FSS contract, the family receives the escrow funds that it can use for any purpose, including debt reduction to improve credit scores, educational expenses, or a down payment on a home.

The average household income of FSS participants nearly tripled during their time in the program, from $10,000 at the time of entry to more than $27,000 upon program completion.

Laura is the epitome of what I look for in a real estate broker. Her charisma and market knowledge is only out done by her hard work and willingness to go above and beyond for her clients. She really has her thumb on the pulse of the Palm Beach County single-family market. James
I'm extremely happy to be in a position to give testimonial to the professionalism and competence of Laura Hepworth. For many months, I agonized over the decision of selling my property in Port St. Lucie. Once I made the decision the rest was easy. Laura guided me through the entire process and the fact that I was living outside the state of Florida made no difference. Every document was thoroughly explained in a simple and concise manner. Laura is a consummate professional, with vast knowledge in the field of real estate. She is competent, honest and stood by me from the beginning to the end. If I should ever conduct another real estate transaction in the state of Florida, I will will not do it without the advice and guidance of Laura Hepworth..............Thank you Laura! Sincerely, Melvon Herbert Melvon Herbert
