Moving to Work - Information for FCRHA Residents


MTW would change the way the FCRHA serves you, the participants in our housing programs.  Most importantly, we would be able to better help you THRIVE by providing enhanced and expanded access to the self-sufficiency services you need, such as job training, affordable child care, and education.  As you gain more self-sufficiency skills, you will be able to move through the FCRHA’s housing continuum. 

If the FCRHA’s MTW application is successful, benefits for you and your family could include:

  • Less Paperwork: Residents may only need to go through the recertification process every other year, instead of annually. Participants on fixed incomes would only need to recertify every three years.

  • “Nest Egg” Savings: Many participants could have opportunities to send a portion of their income increases to a savings account reserved for goals including education, buying a home or retirement.

  • Opportunity: Residents could see increased opportunities for services and training that may help better their future (job training, education, language skills).

  • Services: Those who have health problems, substance abuse issues or disabilities will also be connected to services from other county agencies or nonprofits.

  • Self Sufficiency: Residents could receive increased assistance from case workers to help move them from dependency on government subsidies and programs to becoming self-sufficient.

  • Good Housekeeping Rebates: Those who maintain their homes well help reduce maintenance costs for the FCRHA. Those families could be rewarded for their housekeeping efforts with a rebate at the end of the year.
