2017 HOME TENANT BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE

Applications for the 2017 TBRA program are now available. Completed applications must be returned to KHRC no later than 4 p.m. on Friday June 30, 2017.  Total funding for the 2017 TBRA program is expected to be approximately $1.4 million.

The Tenant Based Rental Assistance Program (TBRA) is funded through the HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME) Program.  HUD allocates funds by formula to eligible State and local governments to strengthen public-private partnerships and to expand the supply of decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing, with primary attention to rental housing for very low-income and low-income families.

Applications for funding to operate a Tenant Based Rental Assistance program will be made available to local units of government, public housing authorities, and non-profit agencies, and will be considered on a competitive basis.  Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) is a program designed to help income-eligible households with rent, security deposit, and/or utility deposits. Assistance in the form of a payment to the landlord helps reduce a household’s housing expense to 30 percent of their income.
