Prairie View is accepting applications from individuals who qualify to receive funds from the Tenant Based Rental Assistance grant. Prairie View was awarded $100,000 from the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation to help people with severe mental illness afford safe and decent housing.
The program awards are funded through the federal HOME Investment Partnership program administered by KHRC. The grant gives the opportunity of affordable housing for those at or below 50 percent median income. Prairie View’s grant is targeted at persons with severe and persistent mental illness.
Eligible tenants for this grant must reside in Harvey, Marion or McPherson counties.
The awarded funds will offer qualified applicants as much as two years of rental subsidy assistance. Households receiving assistance will generally pay no more than 30 percent of their income for rent.
