HUD has awarded $30 million in funding to hire and maintain Service Coordinators who will assess the needs of residents of conventional Public Housing and assist in coordinating community resources. The ROSS-SC awards will go to 111 Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) among other entities to fund 135 Service Coordinator positions. Key changes to the 2022 program funding include raising the maximum salary for Service Coordinators, adding Digital Inclusion to the list of areas of need, and making direct services an eligible expense when there are service provider gaps.
CLPHA congratulates our seven members who received awards:
- Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles
- Boston Housing Authority
- Housing Authority of Baltimore City
- Housing Authority of the City of Goldsboro
- New York City Housing Authority
- Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority
- King County Housing Authority
The ROSS-SC program endeavors to ensure progress along a continuum through training and the use of supportive services. For elderly or disabled public housing residents this can also include the ability to age in place or remain living independently for as long as possible. View the list of awards here.
