KHRC Now Accepting Applications for New Moderate Income Housing Program

--Program Aims to Help Cities and Counties Develop Housing and Infrastructure in Rural Areas--

TOPEKA - Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) is now accepting applications for the Kansas Moderate Income Housing (MIH) Program,  a new initiative to help cities and counties develop moderate income housing and infrastructure in rural areas. Program rules, which can be viewed here, outline eligible applicants and activities, application procedures, grant/loan structuring, award criteria, compliance monitoring and reporting requirements.

MIH was developed in response to the increased need for moderate income housing throughout Kansas. Earlier this year, the Kansas Legislature passed and the Governor signed House Sub. For SB No. 294 (Bill), which provided $2 million to the SHTF for the purpose of administering and supporting housing programs. Depending on availability of funds, KHRC may supplement the state funds with up to $750,000 in existing SHTF resources.

The deadline to submit proposals under the MIH RFP is the close of business on Friday, August 31, 2012. Applications should be sent to:

Moderate Income Housing RFP
Kansas Housing Resources Corporation
611 S. Kansas Ave., Suite 300
Topeka, KS 66603

Applications must be received by KHRC by the August 31, 2012 deadline and will not be accepted in electronic format. Applicants may only submit one application, but may include more than one proposed activity, so long as the application lists the applicant’s priorities.
