The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is a voluntary program for tenants living in Section 8 housing through the Pawtucket Housing Authority. FSS is a supportive, goal-planning program to assist residents in achieving educational and employment goals. By participating in the FSS Program, tenants become eligible for an escrow account. This is a savings account set up in their name by the PHA. Monthly deposits are made when there is an increase in earned income. When residents complete the program they become eligible for the funds in the account.
If you are interested in participating, or learning more about this program, please contact Kimberly Gervais, FSS Coordinator, at (401) 721-6052 or Lourdes Marrero at (401) 721-6048.
