Interested parties will need to fill out a FSS application, a Personal Statement and obtain a Letter of Recommendation from a professional who has known the applicant for 6 months and can address their strengths. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
Once an application is received, the applicant will be contacted to schedule an initial interview. Following the initial interview, applicants may be asked to complete specific, personalized tasks related to goal achievement. After completion of those tasks, applicants will be placed on the FSS waitlist. Placement on the waitlist does not guarantee FSS participation or housing eligibility.
The FSS program is not an emergency housing program and placement on the waitlist may last up to one year or longer.
To participate in Boulder County’s Family Self-Sufficiency program, please fill out this application.
The application for 2- and 3-bedroom Project Based Vouchers for FSS participants in Longmont, Louisville, and Lafayette will be open from 9:00am on January 11, 2021 until 4:30pm on January 12, 2021. Applications for all three locations (Longmont, Louisville, and Lafayette) will be available at this site. Please remember that this list gives preference to applicants already approved for Family Self-Sufficiency Program. For more information on FSS, visit www.fssbouldercounty.org.
The FSS monthly check in is done for those individuals who have their name on the FSS waitlist. This was created because the FSS support specialist had discovered that individuals being on the waitlist for a long period of time may result in feeling disconnected from the FSS program even though they are not “officially” in the FSS program. Doing a monthly check in allows FSS support specialist the opportunity to see how the applicants on the FSS waitlist are doing in terms of employment and/or school and providing resources to them when needed. The expectation is that individuals are making some progress, however small, while they are on the FSS waitlist.
When the applicant’s name reaches the top of the waitlist and moves into a FSS housing unit, the applicant will be assigned a FSS support specialist and will begin FSS participation.
