HUD Hires Service Coordinators For Residents Of Public And Indian Housing
Nearly $40 Million is given to hire service coordinators so that they can access the needs of housing residents and provide the desired resources to meet their needs.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) made an announcement recently that $40 Million in funds are available for Public housing agencies, tribes, multifamily owners, and non-profit organizations through the Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) Service Coordinator Program. The program provides funding to hire and maintain service coordinators to assess the needs of public and Indian housing residents and coordinate available resources in the community to meet those needs.
The program targets the entire resident community and addresses needs at both community and individual level. The program develops local strategies to address the resident’s needs and remove barriers so that residents can make progress toward achieving self-sufficiency and improving their living conditions.
HUD Secretary Marcia L. Fudge said, “Service coordinators play a critical role in helping people in HUD-assisted housing navigate everyday challenges and reach long-term stability. This funding opportunity will ensure more individuals and families can access local tools and resources that meet them at their point of need.”
This notice also allows the public housing agencies or multifamily owners to serve the project residents with assistance converted from public housing to rental assistance demonstration (RAD).
