Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) is in the process of selecting a new weatherization service provider for the eight-county area that has been served by Community Action, Inc. (CAI) since the late 1970s. KHRC currently administers the federally funded Weatherization Assistance Program through partnerships with four subrecipient agencies across the state. These agencies provide weatherization services including free comprehensive home energy audits, repairs, and upgrades to income-eligible Kansas households.

Beginning March 31, 2023, Community Action, Inc. will no longer provide weatherization services to the following counties: Atchison, Brown, Doniphan, Jackson, Jefferson, Nemaha, Leavenworth, and Shawnee. KHRC is in the process of identifying a new service provider for these counties.

During the transition period, residents of the affected counties seeking weatherization assistance should contact KHRC directly. Applications received from Kansans in CAI’s current service area will be kept on file in the interim and transferred to the new service provider to review and process. Previous applicants awaiting review in these counties will receive further guidance directly from CAI.

Weatherization services for qualified households provide energy-conservation upgrades that can lower home utility bills by improving heating and cooling efficiency. These may include:

  • Sealing drafts and air leaks, caulking doors and windows, weather stripping
  • Testing, cleaning, and repairing heating and cooling systems and water heaters
  • Adding insulation to ceilings, walls, floors, and foundations
  • Lighting, refrigerator, and fan upgrades

KHRC thanks CAI for their decadeslong partnership in Weatherization and looks forward to continued partnerships with other housing programs. For further inquiries about the Weatherization Assistance Program, please email Tyler Wilson at tylerw@kshousingcorp.org or call 785-217-2001.

Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) launched a statewide art contest today, inviting K-12 students to share their visions on the theme: WHAT DOES HOME MEAN TO ME? The contest aims to raise awareness of the importance of home and the connection between quality, affordable housing and healthy families and communities. The initiative commemorates KHRC’s 20th anniversary and winners will be celebrated during National Homeownership Month, an annual campaign recognizing the benefits of homeownership.

“Home is more than shelter,” said Ryan Vincent, KHRC’s Executive Director. “It represents safety, community, a sense of belonging, and so much more. As we reflect on two decades of expanding housing opportunities across the state, we welcome our youngest Kansans to share a vision of home for future generations.”

The contest is open to any K-12 Kansas student. Entrants must submit an original, two-dimensional 8.5 by 11-inch piece of artwork (painting, drawing, or photograph), along with a completed entry form.

A KHRC committee will review submissions and select winner(s) to be displayed in the Kansas State Capitol and at the 2023 Kansas Housing Conference Welcome Reception. Submissions will be accepted until May 1. Winners will be announced on May 15 via email and on KHRC’s website.

The first Kansas Affordable Housing Tax Credits have been awarded to four 4% Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) and Private Activity Bond (PAB) projects. In January, Kansas Housing received 11 applications equating to over $250 million in Private Activity Bonds for the first of three application rounds. Of the four applications awarded, the approved LIHTCs and PABs will build 436 new units and rehabilitate 181 affordable units.

The Kansas Affordable Housing Tax Credit was enacted by HB2237 in 2022. All 4% and 9% LIHTC projects awarded in 2023 will receive Kansas Affordable Housing Tax Credits in addition to the federal LIHTCs as an equal match. With the additional funding provided by the state credit, Kansas Housing saw an increase in 4% LIHTC applications, particularly in the new construction set-aside.

Homeownership is within reach for more Kansas families, thanks to expanded eligibility guidelines for the state’s First Time Homebuyer program. Administered by Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC), the program helps income-eligible households purchase their first home by providing down payment and closing cost assistance.

“KHRC wants to keep the dream of homeownership alive for Kansas families despite recent increases in home values and interest rates,” said Ryan Vincent, KHRC’s Executive Director. “By expanding eligibility for first-time homebuyers, we’re making homes more affordable, enabling households to build equity, and helping families invest in future generations of Kansans.”

The First Time Homebuyer Program assists those purchasing their first home or those who have not owned a home for at least three years and earn no more than 80 percent of their area’s median income. Homebuyers must make a modest down payment investment and are eligible for an interest-free loan in the amount of 15 or 20 percent of the home’s purchase price. The loan is forgiven if the buyer remains in the home for 10 years.

Recent program updates have expanded eligibility:

  • Debt-to-income ratio of up to 45 percent. Previously, homebuyers could spend up to 41 percent of their monthly income on debt such as car loans, credit cards, and student loan payments.
  • PITI (mortgage payments including principal, interest, taxes, and insurance) ratio of 15 to 30%. Previously, applicants were required to devote 20 to 30 percent of their monthly income to PITI.
  • Homebuyer down payment contribution of one to 10 percent. Qualified participants were previously required to contribute two to 10 percent of the home’s sale price.
  • Adjusted interest rates. To accommodate a broader range of credit scores, lenders can now set interest rates up to .65 percent higher than Freddie Mac, a .15 percent increase from the previous limit.

Other updates will modernize and streamline the application process for lenders and homebuyers. These include allowances for electronic signatures in place of original signatures, and encrypted emails to replace faxed applications.

Funded by federal HOME funds, the state’s FTHB program assists with home purchases throughout the state except for within the city limits of Topeka, Lawrence, Wichita, or Kansas City, or Johnson County. These areas administer their own HOME funds.

KHRC also administers the Home Loan Guarantee (HLG) for Rural Kansas, which helps existing and prospective homeowners in rural counties by covering the gap between the loan and the appraisal for building or renovating a home.

Seven nonprofit community organizations across the state received a combined $143,040.36 to help low-income Kansans achieve stability and access economic opportunities. The awards, provided through federal Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) discretionary funding, will support initiatives ranging from training staff to provide literacy and educational resources for English and non-English speakers in Northeast Kansas, providing wraparound services for unhoused survivors of domestic violence in Johnson County, and purchasing tablets to track progress for the Habitat Kansas Home Repair Project’s 16 organizations across the state.

“The CSBG program aims to reduce poverty, revitalize low-income communities, and empower low-income families and individuals to become fully self-sufficient,” said Marilyn Stanley, CSBG Program Manager at the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC). “We’re so pleased to work with our community partners to provide these vital resources to Kansans in need.”

Funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the CSBG program supports local service partners that provide resources and assistance to low-income community members. KHRC serves as the state’s CSBG program administrator. CSBG grant awards fund a range of community services, including job training, financial management education, childcare services, housing and food assistance programs, and more.

Service partners apply for annual and discretionary funding through competitive application processes. Complete award details are available below and online.
