Resident Opportunity & Self-Sufficiency Program (ROSS)

Grantor: U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)
Posted: August 30, 2017
Due: October 23, 2017

The Resident Opportunity & Self Sufficiency (ROSS) Service Coordinator (SC) program funds eligible applicants to hire Service Coordinators to coordinate use of assistance under the Public Housing program with public and private resources, for supportive services and resident empowerment activities. Service Coordinators assess the needs of public and Indian housing residents and link them to supportive services that enable participants to increase earned income, reduce or eliminate the need for welfare assistance, and make progress toward achieving economic independence and housing self-sufficiency. In the case of elderly/disabled residents, the Service Coordinator links participants to supportive services which enable them to age/remain in-place thereby avoiding costlier forms of care.

Funds awarded to applicants may be used for:

  • service coordinator functions, 
  • training and travel related to professional and/or program development
  • and administration cost.


Eligibility: 

  • Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education
  • Public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities
  • Native American tribal governments (federally recognized).
