CHA Families Benefit from Family Self-Sufficiency Program


Columbia, Missouri – June 21, 2017:  Families receiving housing assistance through the Columbia Housing Authority (CHA) have benefitted significantly from the opportunities and support provided through the HUD-funded Family Self-Sufficiency Program.  The CHA currently has 135 families participating in the program. The CHA employs two (2) full-time Family Self-Sufficiency Coordinators with the funds received through this federal program. 

On Tuesday, June 13, 2017 U.S. Senators Roy Blunt (Mo.), Jack Reed (R.I.), Tim Scott (S.C.), and Bob Menendez (N.J.) introduced the bipartisan Family Self Sufficiency Act, which would streamline and improve the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Developmentā€™s Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program.  (See attached press release).  The CHA is pleased that this vital program has received bi-partisan support.
