HUD Announces Nationwide Job Grants

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded $75 million in grants to help public and assisted housing residents connect with local services to obtain education and training to find jobs. The funding allows grantees to retain or hire 1,500 service coordinators to work directly with HUD-assisted families to connect them to the supportive services that meet their individual needs to become gainfully employed. The funding announced today includes $15 million through the Public Housing-Family Self-Sufficiency Program (PH-FSS); and $60 million through the  Housing Choice Voucher- Family Self-Sufficiency Program (HCV-FSS).
