Liberal Group To Share In $1.2 Million Dollar Housing Grant

KSCB News - February 7, 2013 8:40 am

Ten nonprofit groups and public housing agencies in Kansas have been awarded a total of $1.2 million to help renters find

affordable housing.

The Kansas Housing Resources Corp. announced the grants Wednesday, saying the funds can be used on subsidies for renters or to help them pay utility and security deposits.

The money comes from the federal government but the grants are administered by the state’s housing corporation, an independent agency with a board appointed by the governor.

Girard-based Southeast Kansas Community Action Program received the largest grant, at $300,000. The Southwest Guidance Center in Liberal and Harvest America in Garden City received grants of $150,000 each.
