State COVID Funds Could Help Pay Rent/Mortgage Payments

Joe Denoyer - June 8, 2020 8:18 am

Gov. Laura Kelly says her administration will consider using part of Kansas’ share of federal coronavirus relief funds to help people struggling to pay their rent or mortgage because of economic problems tied to the pandemic. Kelly on Friday defended a May 26 decision to rescind an executive order that had banned landlords from pursuing new evictions or lenders from starting to foreclose on home mortgages. She said she had to lift the order because keeping it in place would have stressed lenders and businesses that rent homes and apartments. But she said creating a new relief program would be a top priority.
