An Economic Incentive Program for Rental Assistance
For current CTI Section 8/project-based voucher holders.
Are you a MOTIVATED person? Do you want to complete GOALS that will help you become self-sufficient? Would you like the chance to EARN MONEY for your accomplishments? If you answered yes to these questions, and you have a CTI HCVP/Section 8 voucher, the FSS program is right for you
Participants work with a FSS Case Manager to set & achieve their Self-sufficiency goals. Goals are individualized for each participant. Common FSS goals include:
- Job Training
- Money management
- College degree
- One-on-one career planning
- Improving your credit score
- First time home buyer classes
While in FSS, if any of your CTI rent calculations show an increase due to higher wages, CTI will reward you and put money into a savings account (escrow) on your behalf. If you complete your goals, you get all the money in your escrow account.
Once you begin earning escrow, you may be able to withdraw a portion to help you complete a goal.
Need some help paying for a job training? Books for school? We may be able to help pay for costs that will help you to get your goal completed.
Personal Job Coaching
As a CTI HCVP/Section 8 voucher holder, you have access to our Career Coach who will provide you with one-on-one personalized job coaching. The Career Coach can help you with choosing a career path, finding job trainings, job search, resume writing, and providing funding for some job trainings.
Do you dream of owning a home one day? Let us help you put a plan into action to make that dream come true. We offer specialized homeownership workshops and one-on-one financial coaching for FSS participants on a home-ownership track, as well as a $5000 bonus for a down payment upon forfeiting the voucher.
In addition, participants who join FSS with a high earned income can participate in our FSS Savings Match Homeowner-ship Program, where you would receive a $3 match for every $1 you put into savings for a down payment on a home.
There are many ways the FSS program can help you move your family towards self-sufficiency.
