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.
After completing this training, participants will be able to:
• Locate the regulations regarding the PCC requirement
• Assemble the HUD required members of the PCC
• Determine additional agencies to benefit your local PCC
• Articulate the necessity of the PCC to the FSS Program
• Select the best structure for your local PCC
• Develop invitations, orientation letters and Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) for potential members
• Create an initial meeting agenda and document attendance
• Develop a plan for growing your PCC
