Housing Grant Will Assist Low-income Residents In NCK

The North Central – Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging has announced that it will offer security deposit assistance to low-income residents of Cloud, Ellsworth, Jewell, Lincoln, Mitchell, Ottawa, Republic, and Saline Counties starting immediately, thanks to a grant from the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC).

The Area Agency on Aging was awarded $100,000 from the grant funded through the federal HOME Investment Partnerships Program and administered by KHRC.

Tenant Based Rental Assistance allows organizations to provide rental subsidies, utility deposits and security deposits for income-eligible individuals and families.

The funds in conjunction with the agency’s existing rental assistance program, will help even more low-income seniors, single parents and people with disabilities
