Family Self-Sufficiency Act

This bill amends the United States Housing Act of 1937 to revise the Family-Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program, an employment and savings incentive program for families that reside in public housing or have housing vouchers. Specifically, the bill:

  • combines existing, separately operated FSS programs into a single program;
  • extends program eligibility to tenants of certain privately owned properties subsidized with project-based rental assistance;
  • revises program requirements related to eligibility, supportive services, and escrow deposits; and
  • otherwise modifies the FSS program.
