Economic Self-Sufficiency (ESS) Program

The Economic Self-Sufficiency (ESS) Program is a voluntary program for residents who want to work towards independence and home ownership. Participants complete training in money management, career development, and home buying. they work towards improving their education, gaining employment, repairing their credit, and building a savings account. When a participant in the program begins working and their rent increases, a portion of that increase is credited to an escrow account. The escrow funds may be used for a down payment on a house if the resident successfully completes their contract.
