The Families in Training Program is a HUD funded, educationally driven self-sufficiency program that was created by Panhandle Community Services in the 1980’s.
The FIT Program is designed to assist families working toward self-sufficiency. The program provides a Section 8 voucher to families where at least one member is actively persuading a post-secondary degree at an accredited educational institution.
To be eligible for the FIT program, applicants must meet the Section 8 Voucher program requirements; one or more of the family members of the household must be enrolled and actively pursuing a post-secondary degree at an accredited institution; and the family must have at least one minor child living in the household. Proof of residency and school schedule is also required at the time of application.
Applications and information are available at any Panhandle Community Services Center.
