Certification & Training

Establishing and Operating the Program Coordinating Committee (PCC) for your FSS program


Although an active and viable Program Coordinating Committee (PCC) is a prerequisite for the operation of a HUD funded Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS), a large percentage of housing authorities are in violation of the grant by not having one. Developing and maintaining a PCC is not as scary as it may sound. It is a matter of understanding the resources that exist in your community and bringing them together to benefit your FSS participants.

This course breaks down the steps to establish a PCC and provides experiential exercises to help you develop a written plan to ensure your agency can meet this requirement.

• Locate the regulations regarding the PCC requirement
