HUD Regional Director Joseph P. Galvan recently announced grants to the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee and to Friends of Housing Corporation under the Resident Opportunities and Self Sufficiency (ROSS) Program. Galvan presented ceremonial checks representing the grants at an event held in Milwaukee on December 20, 2005.
HUD granted a total of $415,000 to the Housing Authority -- $350,000 for Homeownership Supportive Services and $65,000 for Family Self Sufficiency Coordinators. The Homeownership Supportive Services grant will be used to offer homebuyer counseling and other supportive services to help public housing residents achieve homeownership.
