Providing Housing Resources With an Eagerness to Serve
We are currently not accepting new applications for these programs.
Family Self-Sufficiency Program
Participants in OHFA’s Family Self-Sufficiency program take steps toward the achievement of their goals. The FSS program encourages financial growth for tenants participating with the Section 8 program.
Participants sign a 5 year contract and develop a plan of success designed to fit their specific needs. They work towards the achievement of these goals while receiving support from OHFA and FSS Coordinators. FSS is voluntary and participating does not affect your rental assistance.
Financial benefits include the establishment of an Escrow Savings Account.
Section 8 Homeownership Program
FSS participants may choose to enter the path toward homeownership. In this instance, funds formerly allocated to paying a portion of the rent goes toward the paying of a mortgage.
