HUD Awards Over $1.2 Million to Promote Jobs, Self-Sufficiency for Public Housing Residents in Wisconsin

The funding will also link the elderly and people with disabilities with supportive services that allow them to maintain independent living and age-in-place.

WASHINGTON – In an effort to help public housing residents find job opportunities, The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today awarded over $1.2 million in grants to 4 public housing authorities and non-profit organizations in Wisconsin to hire or retain service coordinators to help residents achieve economic and housing independence. The funding will also link the elderly and people with disabilities with supportive services that allow them to maintain independent living and age-in-place. See list of funding by states below.

The funding, provided through HUD’s Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency – Service Coordinators Program (ROSS-SC) helps public housing authorities, resident associations, non-profit organizations, Indian tribes or entities representing Indian tribes hire or retain “service coordinators” who work directly with residents to assess their needs and connect them with education, job training and placement programs, and/or computer and financial literacy services available in their community to promote self-sufficiency. For an elderly or disabled resident, the service coordinator arranges supportive services that allow them to maintain their independence.

“Housing should be a springboard to success,” said HUD Secretary Julián Castro. “This funding will help our local partners provide families with the educational and economic opportunities they need to build a more prosperous future for themselves and their children.”

“This grant will facilitate opportunities for self-sufficiency and success via service coordinators with local expertise in Wisconsin,” said HUD Midwest Regional Administrator, Antonio R. Riley.

The purpose of HUD’s ROSS-SC program is to encourage local, innovative strategies that link public housing assistance with public and private resources to enable participating families to increase earned income; reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance; and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency.
