Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, Tribes, resident associations, and public housing agencies to achieve economic stability and independence for public and indigenous housing residents. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support the services of coordinators who will assist residents in areas such as education, health, financial literacy, and employment.
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 moves along a continuum towards economic independence and stability; such movement is facilitated by the achievement of personal goals.
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 this continuum. In the case of elderly/disabled residents, the Service Coordinator links them to supportive services which enables them to age or 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. Core functions of the program grantees are to provide resident needs assessment, coordination with local service providers, case management/coaching, resident engagement, and evaluation. For further details on these core functions, see https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/SPM/documents/FY19_ROSS_Final_08.22.19.pdf#page=4.
Each applicant may select three of the following areas of need to be addressed: Education, financial literacy, health and wellness, elderly and disabled, re-entry, employment, and substance abuse. (If an applicant selects health and wellness, reentry, or substance abuse, then the applicant must also select either education, employment, or financial literacy.) For further details about each of these areas of need, see: https://www.hud.gov/sites/dfiles/SPM/documents/FY19_ROSS_Final_08.22.19.pdf#page=26.
