Resident Opportunity and Self Sufficiency Program NOFA

The Resident Opportunity & Self Sufficiency Service Coordinator (ROSS-SC) program is designed to assist residents of Public and Indian Housing make progress towards economic self-sufficiency. Self Sufficiency is an individual’s ability to support their household by maintaining financial, housing, and personal/family stability. To achieve self-sufficiency, an individual move along a continuum towards economic independence and stability; such movement is facilitated by the achievement of personal goals.

To help residents make progress towards self-sufficiency, HUD provides ROSS-SC grant funding to eligible applicants to hire a Service Coordinator who assesses the needs of Public and Indian housing residents and links them to supportive services that enable participants to move along a continuum towards self-sufficiency. In the case of elderly/disabled residents, the Service Coordinator links them to supportive services which enables them to age/remain in place.

This place-based program targets the entire resident community in the project(s) to be served and aims to address the areas of need at the community and individual level. The ROSS-SC must work with residents, PHA staff, local partners, and other stakeholders to develop local strategies to address the needs of residents and remove barriers so that residents are making progress towards achieving self-sufficiency.

ROSS-SC funds may be used for the coordinator’s salary and fringe benefits, travel and training expenses, and administrative costs. 

Funding of up to $35,000,000 is available through this NOFA. 

Additional funds may become available for award under this NOFA, because of HUD’s efforts to recapture unused funds, use carryover funds, or because of the availability of additional appropriated funds. Use of these funds is subject to statutory constraints. All awards are subject to the applicable funding restrictions contained in this NOFA.
