A twenty- five county region in southwest Kansas will be split and will receive new service providers for the Kansas Weatherization Assistance Program this month. The region had been served by Interfaith Housing Services, Inc. for the previous 9 years.
As of the February 6, 2017 application deadline, KHRC had received nine applications for HOME Rental Development funds, and nineteen applications for the National Housing Trust Fund (HTF). Deferred-payment loans from these two Federal programs will assist in the development of affordable rental housing for low income Kansas families and individuals. HTF funds will serve extremely low-income individuals and families.
Ten non-profits and public housing authorities will share approximately $1.49 million in Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) to help Kansas families obtain safe, affordable housing of their choice. Funded through the federal HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) and administered by Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC), TBRA helps income-eligible households afford rental subsidies, utility deposits and security deposits.
