Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, resident associations, tribes, and housing authorities to help public and indigenous housing residents achieve economic stability and independence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency Service Coordinator (ROSS-SC) 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.

Self-sufficiency is defined as a household’s ability to maintain financial, housing, and personal/family stability. To achieve self-sufficiency, individuals in a household move along a continuum towards economic independence and stability; such movement is facilitated by the achievement of educational, professional, and health/mental health and financial empowerment-related goals. For the ROSS program, self-sufficiency is further 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.

To help residents make progress towards self-sufficiency, HUD provides ROSS-SC grant funding through a NOFO to eligible applicants to hire a Service Coordinator who assesses the needs of public and Indian housing residents and links them to training and supportive services that will enable participants to move along the self-sufficiency continuum. In the case of elderly residents and residents with disabilities, the service coordinator also links them to congregate and other supportive services which enable them to age/remain in place in addition to providing any desired training and supportive services which are made available to other residents. Through the ROSS-SC grant, HUD also provides funding flexibility to allow grantees to provide direct services to ROSS participants where necessary to further support the work of the ROSS-SC and ultimately, the attainment of self-sufficiency goals of ROSS participants.

This place-based program targets the entire resident community within the project(s) to be served and aims to address the areas of need at both the community and individual level. The ROSS-SC must work with residents, PHA staff, local partners, and other stakeholders to develop local strategies to address the needs of residents and remove barriers so that residents make progress towards achieving economic and housing self-sufficiency. 

ROSS-SC funds may only be used for the coordinator's salary and fringe benefits; travel and training expenses; and administrative costs.
