FSS training opportunity for PBCA projects
HUD has released a new Final Rule as well as a NOFO for the FSS program which for the first time, opens funding opportunities to private and nonprofit Multifamily Housing Owners to support the salaries and training needs of FSS Program Coordinators who assist participating families receiving housing assistance through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV/PBV) and Public Housing (PH) programs. The new final rule specifically changes program requirements related to program eligibility, escrow deposits, and supportive services; extends eligibility by allowing private owners of PBCA properties to voluntarily make an FSS program available to their tenants. Please note that HUD published the Final Rule implementing the changes to the FSS program on May 17, 2022. The Notice can be accessed at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2022/05/17/2022-09528/streamlining-and-implementation-of-economic-growth-regulatory-relief-and-consumer-protection-act.
