An opportunity for families living in CMHA-assisted housing to become self-sufficient by increasing their earned income. The FSS Program helps families with CMHA Housing Choice Vouchers or living in CMHA Public Housing take the steps to find and maintain stable employment and establish savings accounts that will lead to self-sufficiency.
It is an opportunity to invest in your future—whether you want to finish school, find a better job, or secure the childcare and transportation you need to stay employed. If you choose to participate, you will sign a five-year contract and develop a personal plan for becoming self-sufficient.
After signing the contract, it is up to you to work toward your goals, with the support of the FSS Coordinator. If you currently have a Housing Choice Voucher from CMHA or live in CMHA Public Housing, are able to work, and want to become self-sufficient, you may be eligible.
The first step is to place your name on our FSS waiting list.
As slots in the program open up, you will be invited to attend an FSS orientation meeting, where you will learn more about program enrollment and participation requirements.
Any family with an outstanding debt to CMHA must have an executed repayment agreement and be current in payments to place their name on the FSS waiting list.
How can you save the money needed to achieve your goals?
CMHA establishes an interest-bearing escrow (savings) account for each FSS participant.
As you work toward your goals, and your earned income increases, CMHA makes contributions to this account.
