The City of Deerfield Beach Housing Authority (DBHA) is proud to announce that it was selected to participate in a research study called the National FSS Demonstration Study. Our housing authority will partner with MDRC, a non-profit social policy research organization. MDRC was selected by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to evaluate the effectiveness of the FSS program. Including DBHA, a total of 18 housing agencies will participate in this national study.
The main goal of the FSS program is to help our families improve their financial situation through employment and education and achieve homeownership, entrepreneurship, and self-sufficiency. On January 17, 2014, we held our first orientation for the National FSS Study, and it was a success! Nearly 90% of the families who attended the study orientation session agreed to participate. There are a few spaces left to participate in the study, so if you have a HCV voucher with the City of Deerfield Beach Housing Authority and would like to participate in this study, please contact Betty Ferguson at 954-315-5339 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
