Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The HPHA administers the Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program and its participants are linked to social services to help them gain economic independence from government assistance. Participants sign a FSS contract which sets out goals for their progress. As part of the program, an interest-bearing FSS escrow account is established by the HPHA for each participating family. As their income grows, the funds are deposited into the escrow account for the family who is eligible to receive the funds at the completion of their contract. In FY 21, eight participants graduated from the FSS program with over $88,000 in savings.

Moving To Work Program

In October of 2021, the HPHA applied for the last spot available nationwide for large public housing authorities to join the “Moving to Work” (MTW) Demonstration Program expansion – Landlord Incentives Cohort with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The MTW designation would allow the HPHA the flexibility to use its currently restrictive federal funding to increase economic self-sufficiency and prosperity, create innovative local solutions to address unique needs in Hawaii, and would increase housing choices for low-income families in Hawaii.

The HPHA’s application would seek to implement 3 landlord incentives:

  1. Provide a landlord up to 1 month of contract rent as reimbursement for the time the unit spent vacant in between Section 8 participants.
  2. Provide a landlord up to 1 month of contract rent as reimbursement for the time the unit spent vacant when the previous tenant was not a Section 8 participant.
  3. Provide an incentive payment, or “signing bonus”, of up to 1 month of contract rent to incentivize landlords to join the Section 8 program.

On January 27, 2022, the HPHA received an award letter from HUD indicating that the HPHA was selected for admission to HUD’s Landlord Incentives Cohort of the MTW Demonstration Program.
