Resident Services Programs
The Housing Authority helps families move out of poverty and become free from public assistance with the following self-sufficiency programs.
Families seeking economic self-sufficiency and independence from public assistance can apply for the Family Self-Sufficiency Program. This program provides families with ongoing support services to help set personal goals and provide referrals to overcome barriers to success.
A further incentive toward reaching goals is the escrow account. As the family’s earned income and rent increases, a portion of the rent increase goes into an escrow savings account. Upon successful completion of the program, the participant receives the full savings account including interest.
The Homeownership Program enables a current Housing Choice Voucher holder to use that voucher to assist with a mortgage payment as opposed to a rent payment. A coordinator educates and coaches families through the process and responsibilities of owning a home.
