Programs available to help residents seeking immediate housing include those which offer homelessness prevention, rental, emergency loan, moving cost and credit counseling assistance.  Programs providing long-term housing assistance can help repair and rehabilitate owner-occupied homes, fund new home construction and offer down payment, closing cost and mortgage loan assistance for first-time homebuyers. Applicants for the programs listed in the guide must meet income guidelines.

Programs featured in the “Harveyville Housing Resources Guide” are presented in an overview format, along with contact information and phone numbers. To view the guide, click here. For questions, please contact Catherine Couch at ccouch@kshousingcorp.org.
