Family Self-Sufficiency Program

Methuen Housing Authority offers the FSS program to anyone with a Section 8 voucher through MHA or any resident living in MHA’s Federal Public Housing (Jade Street Development). The head of household OR any adult household member is eligible to participate. This program is free and voluntary.

This HUD-funded program is designed to promote financial independence by assisting participants in increasing their earned income through case management, supportive services, education, employment counseling, financial counseling, and more. Participants that increase their earned income during their FSS contract of participation are able to earn escrow credit which they may receive upon successful completion of the program and goal achievement.
