Home Departments Family Self-Sufficiency

The Family Self Sufficiency Program offers many services which allow residents the opportunity to become economically self-sufficient.


The Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is designed to help families receiving rental assistance to become self-supporting. This program is voluntary and open to all families receiving Section 8 or public housing assistance through the Lowell Housing Authority. The only requirements are a desire to become self-sufficient and a willingness to take the steps to make this happen. The FSS Program provides support and assistance to the entire family.


The FSS Director can help you find the services you need to become self-sufficient, such as:

  • Job Training
  • Child Care
  • Educational Programs, including GED classes
  • Counseling
  • Case Management
  • Financial Literacy
