  • Kansas Housing awards $1.6 million to support housing stability across the state

Eleven nonprofit entities across the state will share more than $1.6 million for families and individuals at risk of homelessness. The awards, made possible through the state’s Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program and funded through the federal HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), helps income-eligible households afford rental subsidies, utility deposits, and security deposits.

“The TBRA program helps Kansans at risk of homelessness achieve housing stability,” said Cynthia Howerton, TBRA program manager. “It’s hard for families to focus on long-term goals like career development or financial planning without a roof over their heads. Stable housing helps families move from economic vulnerability to self-sufficiency.”

Awarded annually, TBRA grants are based on a community’s housing needs, the number of households estimated to be served and the organization’s experience in administering TBRA funding.  Public housing authorities and non-profit organizations may apply for grants of up to $400,000.

This year’s award details are listed below. To apply for rental assistance, please contact the provider serving your area.
