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.

HUD’s mission is to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all.
