Grants ranging up to $720,000 for hiring and maintaining salaried Service Coordinators to coordinate and organize activities and services to help Public and Indian Housing residents attain economic and housing self-sufficiency. The purpose of this funding is to support the provision of Service Coordinators and does not fund the direct provision of services. 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. The Service Coordinator will ensure that program participants are linked to the supportive services they need to achieve self-sufficiency or remain independent. Funding may be used for position salary, training and administrative expenses.
