TOPEKA - Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) will host four town hall meetings this month to discuss an initiative designed to help cities and counties develop moderate income housing and infrastructure in rural areas. The initiative, now in its second year, is called the Moderate Income Housing (MIH) Program and was developed in response to the increased need for higher-income workforce housing throughout Kansas. KHRC anticipates $2 million in funding will be available from the State Housing Trust Fund (SHTF) for the 2013 allocation round. Funding availability is pending approval from the state legislature.
KHRC will post an updated Request for Proposal (RFP) on the MIH Program later this week on the Corporation’s website www.kshousingcorp.org. The RFP will outline eligible applicants and activities, application procedures, grant/loan structuring, award criteria, compliance monitoring and reporting requirements.
Citizens who want to learn more about the MIH program or have questions about the 2013 RFP may attend four meetings throughout the month of June. Dates and locations of the meetings are as follows:
