Introduction to R.O.S.S.

The Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency grant program is designed to assist residents of Public and Indian Housing make progress towards economic and housing self-sufficiency by removing the educational, professional and health barriers they face.

WHAT IS SELF-SUFFICIENCY? Self-Sufficiency is defined as a household's ability to maintain financial, housing, and personal/family stability. It is also defined as a resident's ability to progress along the self-sufficiency continuum through training and the utilization of supportive services. In the case of elderly residents and residents with disabilities, self-sufficiency is further defined as the utilization of supportive services which enable them to age in place or remain living independently for as long as possible.

The Community Development Administrator will provide general case management to residents which includes intake, assessment, education, and referral service to providers in the community.
