Moss Point School District Employees Approved for Housing Program

MOSS POINT (WLOX)  More than 20 Moss Point School District employees have been confirmed as eligible to participate in a housing program to help with down payment on a new home.  The Moss Point School District is particpating in REACH Mississippi, a post-Katrina program designed to help residents achieve homeownership. 

The school district is planning a special meeting to give employees who have been approved an opportunity to meet with local realtors and private home owners who may be selling a Moss Point home. The program includes a partnership with REACH Mississippi and the Renaissance Corporation.  REACH will award the school district $10,000 per employee, and the Renaissance Corporation will match those funds up to $30,000.  That means the employees could receive up to $40,000 for a down payment on a home.   

"We were excited to learn the school district was approved for the program, and now we are even more excited to have these employees qualify for the funds," said Superintendent Kim Staley.  

"This is a win-win for everyone," said Human Resource Director Cathenual Keeton.  "We are proud to be able to help our employees take roots in our community."

Employees who have applied and been approved will have the opportunity to meet and greet with local realtors and home owners at a special meeting to be held on Friday, January 23, 2009, at Moss Point High School's auditorium.  All local realtors and private home owners who are selling Moss Point homes are welcomed and encouraged to attend.  Representatives from REACH Mississippi will also be in attendance. Realtors or private home owners who may have more questions are welcomed to call Moss Point School District's Human Resource office at (228) 475-7770.
