BHA Awarded Resident Opportunity Self Sufficiency [ROSS] Grant from HUD

The City of Beacon Housing Authority has been awarded the Resident Opportunity Self Sufficiency [ROSS] grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The purpose of the grant is to connect tenants of public housing authorities with services and activities to achieve economic and housing self sufficiency.  This purpose is two-fold, as the program will work with families and elderly or persons with disabilities.

The work with families will include services helping families increase earned income thus reduce or eliminate the need for public assistance.  For the elderly and persons with disabilities, the program is designed to improve living conditions to allow for independent living.

If you, your family or anyone you know is a Beacon Housing Authority tenant and can benefit from the program, call the BHA at 845-831-1289.
