HUD Awards $32 Million For Jobs, Self-Sufficiency for Housing Residents

WASHINGTON – December 23, 2016: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded $32 million to public housing authorities, public housing resident associations, Native American tribes, and non-profit organizations across the nation to hire or retain service coordinators to help residents find jobs, educational opportunities, and achieve economic and housing independence (see list below).

The funding, provided through HUD’s Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency – Service Coordinators Program (ROSS-SC) helps grantees hire or retain “service coordinators” who work directly with residents to assess their needs and connect them with education, job training and placement programs, and/or computer and financial literacy services available in their community to promote self-sufficiency.

“Helping public housing residents find decent jobs that pay a living wage is the surest path to opportunity and self-sufficiency,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “This funding provides our local partners with the resources to help more Americans build a brighter future for themselves and their children.”

The purpose of HUD’s ROSS-SC program is to encourage innovative and locally driven strategies that link public housing assistance with public and private resources to enable participating families increase earned income; reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance; and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.
