Guide 7: Resident Training and Self-Sufficiency Programs


HUD is committed to advancing self-sufficiency and financial stability among public housing residents. HUD, local housing authorities, and community organizations offer programs to support public housing residents in their efforts to become more self-sufficient. Your resident council can participate and advance these programs.

Key Points

  • HUD and other sources provide funding for services that support residents
  • Under some programs, resident councils can receive funding directly
  • For all programs, resident councils can advocate with the housing authority to implement strong programs
