Family Self Sufficiency Program Information


The Housing Choice Voucher Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is a voluntary five-year program for families with Housing Choice Vouchers. The program helps families become financially independent. The main goal of the program is to help families get good jobs and earn enough money so they do not need public cash assistance. Families get referrals for education, job training, and other services.  The FSS Coordinator helps FSS families define their goals and set up a plan to achieve them. Goals may include a good job, homeownership, college, and/or starting a business.

The Housing Authority works with local agencies to help Housing Choice Voucher FSS families get the services they need to reach their goals. In addition, for many FSS families, if the family's income and rent share go up during the program, the PHA puts money in a special FSS escrow account. The family gets the money when they finish the program.

How to Apply

If you are a CURRENT Housing Choice Voucher Participant and would like to apply for the Family Self-Sufficiency Program, contact the Family Self Sufficiency Coordinator at (530) 671-0220 extension 140.

FSS Action Plan


Portability is the transfer process that enables Housing Choice Voucher holders to relocate and select housing anywhere in the United States. The Housing Authority works with other Housing Authorities in the portability process in order to further increase a participant’s residential choice and mobility and encourage social and economic integration. The Housing Authority briefs Housing Choice Voucher applicants and participants on the benefits of portability. If a Housing Authority Voucher holder chooses to move under portability, he/she complete a portability request form.
