Resident Opportunities and Self-Sufficiency Program
The ROSS program utilizes a ROSS Service Coordinator to link public housing residents with supportive services, resident empowerment activities and assistance in becoming economically self-sufficient. The ROSS Service Coordinator assesses the needs of residents of FHA and coordinates available resources in the community to meet those needs. This program works to promote the development of local strategies to coordinate the use of assistance under the Public Housing program with public and private resources, for supportive services and resident empowerment activities.
These services should enable participating families to increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency, or, in the case of elderly or disabled residents, help improve living conditions and enable residents to age-in-place.
