Case Management and clinic services are provided by the VA at local VA Hospitals or community based outreach clinics.

Family Self Sufficiency Program

The Cheyenne Housing Authority administers the Family Self-Sufficiency Program in conjunction with HUD. This program allows individuals and families the opportunity to design a plan that would encourage and promote self-sufficiency by encouraging employment, advancement and independance from government assistance through education, training and case management.

Eligible families must be enrolled in a Housing Choice Voucher program or currently be accepting Public Housing as well as be in good standing with the CHA. Participation is voluntary and intended for families and individuals over the age of 18 who are willing to seek and maintain employment.

The CHA will calculate and maintain an interest bearing escrow account for the participants based on increases in their earned income. Families that successfully complete the program will receive the accrued escrow funds, plus interest to purchase a home of their own. FSS is a long-term case management program designed to connect participants with support services while encouraging the elimination of dependance on social welfare programs.
