The Board of Directors of the Crossville Housing Authority is proud to announce that Miranda Horton will be graduating from the Family Self-Sufficiency Program on Monday, November 16th at 12pm in the Board Room at the Crossville Housing Authority, located at 67 Irwin Avenue, in Crossville, Tennessee. The FSS program provides guidance and goal setting to Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Clients as they seek to improve their lives by furthering their education and employment opportunities. One of the key features of the FSS program is the FSS escrow account. With the program, self-sufficiency is stressed. As participants begin to gain more education and better Employment opportunities, their rent often increases. With FSS Clients, this increase is matched by HUD, and placed into an escrow account. When the participant graduates from the program, they receive their funds. On Monday, Ms. Horton will be receiving her escrow check in the amount of $9281.26.
