How much escrow will I receive?
Escrows vary depending on your family's income as it varies throughout the term of your Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) contract. Some families don't earn an escrow at all, but are still successful at completing their self-sufficiency goals.

The basic escrow calculation comes after a rent calculation has been completed, and both family rent and wages increased.

Once this process has occurred, the current Family Rent is subtracted from the base Family Rent listed on the current FSS contract.

If escrow is earned, the deposits begin monthly.
