Over the past year, KHRC has allocated over $2.5 million to help 179 Kansas families become new homeowners. Over the last 10 years, the corporation assisted nearly 2000 families with over $27 million in down payment assistance. Income-eligible households that have not owned a home in the past three years may apply for the First Time Homebuyer Program. Approved applicants receive a soft loan that is forgiven over time. The loan may range from 15 to 20 percent of the home’s purchase price, depending on the buyer’s amount of income.
