Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The Section 8 Family Self-Sufficiency Program functions in part through partnerships within the community and serves to assist participants in becoming financially independent. This program offers support and incentives to qualified families who are already participating in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program and are seeking economic independence. The program is structured over a period of five years. The head of household signs a contract outlining his or her commitment to self-sufficiency and the goals to accomplish this. The program features a formal application process, consistent follow-up, and the development of an interest bearing escrow account where a percentage of additional earned income is deposited. The escrow account is distributed upon completion of the contract. DCHA encourages qualified participants to pursue home ownership and many program graduates use their escrow accounts for down payments on a home of their own. In order to help participants realize all of their goals, DCHA develops a wide array of partnerships with outside agencies to provide the supportive services each family requires in order to become self-sufficient. Please contact Mary Swanstrom at 801-939-9198 for more information about this program.
