PCHA Receives Funding to Help Families Obtain the Skills that Lead to Employment and Self-Sufficiency

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development announced another approval of funding to the Pinellas County Housing Authority (PCHA) to coordinate education, skills and job training to help public residents move to economic self-sufficiency.

"In today's economy, it's never been more critical to help families obtain the skills that lead to jobs," said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. "With HUD's help, these housing authorities will be able to assist families in finding employment, increasing their earning potential and putting them on a path to self-sufficiency."

Earlier this year PCHA applied for the grant. "The funding allows us to pay a full time Family Self-Sufficiency Coordinator to work with residents in setting goals, and in connecting them with local education and training opportunities, job placement organizations, and local employers" said Regina Booker, Director of Resident Services and Programs.  

PCHA's Board of Commissioners established "Increasing Services to Promote Self-Sufficiency" as a top priority for the housing authority in 2009.  Since that time PCHA has worked on building community partnerships and implementing programs to assist residents in moving to economic self-sufficiency.   

The Family Self-Sufficiency Program can be a tremendous help to anyone living in public housing or participating in the Housing Voucher program.   All residents are encouraged to participate!
