Daniel and Tonya Boehman are the proud owners of a new
home through support of the Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) Family
Self-Sufficiency (FSS) Program. The Boehmans were recognized during a
ceremony on Monday, December 14, at their home in Owensboro.
“Graduating from the FSS Program means demonstrating a
commitment to self-sufficiency,” said Davey King, director of
Specialized Housing at KHC. “We at KHC congratulate the Boehmans on
their new home and the success they have achieved through the FSS
KHC’s FSS Program is a voluntary option for people who
are receiving housing assistance through the Section 8 Housing Choice
Voucher Program administered by KHC. The program coordinates rental
assistance and supportive services for those who are committed to
reaching the goal of economic self-sufficiency. FSS participants
receive employment skills training, budget and credit counseling, money
management tips, and homeownership education.
In addition to their training, most FSS participants
receive money upon graduation from the program. As a participant's
income increases, their share of rent goes up and KHC's share
decreases. KHC then deposits some or all of its payment portion into a
savings account for the participant. When the participant completes the
program, they are encouraged to use the money for a down payment on a
home, like the Boehmans did.
