Family Development and Self Sufficiency Program

The Family Development and Self Sufficiency Program (FaDSS) program provides in-home case management to families who are at risk of long-term dependency on the Family Investment Program (FIP).  FaDSS offers FIP families with significant or multiple barriers supportive services designed to help them reach economic self-sufficiency. 
Until state fiscal year 2007, the Department of Human Services contracted with the Department of Human Rights (DHR), Division of Community Action Agencies (DCAA) to administer the FaDSS grants program.  In July 2007, DHR became solely responsible for the administration of the FaDSS program. The Department of Human Services continues to report on results for FIP families receiving FaDSS services.
The FaDSS Results Report  shows results of the 18 providers of FaDSS services (grantees) statewide.  The information is updated approximately mid-month with a two-month lag time for complete data entry.  For example, March 2011 data is posted around mid-May.
