Housing rehabilitation grants awarded to two Kansas communities

The Kansas Department of Commerce announced today that two Kansas communities will share $599,996 in federal funds through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program for housing rehabilitation. These housing grants will rehabilitate 17 properties and demolish 14 dilapidated units.

“Housing is a critical component of economic development, particularly in our state’s rural communities,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “This CDBG funding will help Ashland and Frankfort make important improvements to meet the housing needs of their communities.”

Housing rehabilitation grants are awarded through an annual competition. They support rehabilitation of owner and renter occupied residences with targeted areas to encourage neighborhood revitalization.

For more information on housing rehabilitation grants or the Community Development Block Grant program, contact the Rural Development Division of the Kansas Department of Commerce at (785) 296-3004 or ruraldev@kansascommerce.com.

City of Ashland, $299,996
Located in Clark County, Ashland has a population of 1,145. This grant will rehabilitate nine homes for low-to-moderate income families and demolish five unoccupied housing units. Local funding will total $22,800.
