HOME-ARP

About

Kansas Housing Resources Corporation’s (KHRC) Housing Development Team is working to implement the HOME-ARP program. HUD obligated HOME-ARP funds to KHRC in the amount of $22,929,650 on September 20, 2021. This program is part of the American Rescue Plan Act, which became law on March 11, 2021.

HOME-ARP is designed to support specific Qualifying Populations, as follows:

  • Homeless
  • At Risk of Homelessness
  • Fleeing, or Attempting to Flee, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, or Human Trafficking
  • Other Populations
    • Other Families Requiring Services or Housing Assistance to Prevent Homelessness
    • At Greatest Risk of Housing Instability
  • Veterans, and families that include a veteran family member, that meet the criteria for one of the qualifying populations described above are eligible to receive HOME-ARP assistance

HOME-ARP eligible activities include:

  • Development and support of affordable housing
  • Supportive services
  • Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA)
  • Acquisition and development of non-congregate shelter units
  • Up to 10% of funds can be designated for operating and capacity building expenses for nonprofits carrying out HOME-ARP activities.
Before KHRC can award funds, KHRC must have an approved HOME-ARP Allocation Plan, which identifies needs and sets priorities for the use of the funds. The writing of this plan included consultation with stakeholders in Kansas who work with the qualifying populations and who were able to provide data to inform the development of our program. KHRC held listening sessions in 2022 to bring these organizations to the table to discuss the needs in the system. 
 
KHRC submitted the HOME-ARP Allocation Plan to HUD for consideration on Thursday, December 8, 2022.
