The Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) is a voluntary program offered to EPHA Housing Choice and Public Housing participants. This program was established by HUD and is designed to assist families in becoming economically self-sufficient.
The FSS program requires each head of household to enter into a 5 year contract. The head of household as well as any adult members over the age of 18 in the household that wish to participate, will work one on one with the FSS Coordinator to establish a list of obtainable life, financial, and career goals.
During your contract period participants will attend specified workshops and training sessions that will help them with their goals of becoming self sufficient.

Let Your Savings Grow With an Escrow
The amount of the increase in family rent resulting from an increase in earned income is escrowed.
The general concept of the escrow account is that FSS families continue to pay rent in accordance with their incomes.
The IRS does not count the funds or interest on the funds in the escrow account as income for purposes of income taxes, either before or when the family actually receives the escrow.
The PHA cannot restrict a family’s use of FSS escrow account funds withdrawn by the family unless the funds are withdrawn to aid in the completion of an interim goal.

Per HUD’s new non-smoking regulation, East Point Housing Authority (EPHA) will be going Smoke Free. All EPHA properties will be smoke-free campuses before JUNE 2018. The smoke-free campaign includes use of all lit tobacco products (e.g., cigarettes, pipes, and cigars) e-cigarettes, and water pipe tobacco smoking (i.e., hookahs). At EPHA we care about our residents’ health and want to assist in preventing smoke related illnesses. We also want to maintain the upkeep of our properties and we need your help to do that. If you are ready to stop smoking, contact your EPHA Housing Specialist for available resources to help you quit.
