CREDIT - LOANS - GRANTS - BUILD YOUR OWN
The City of Wichita expends HOME Investment Partnership funds for the development of affordable residential housing.
Applications are requested for housing development projects that meet the eligibility requirements for such funding. The goal is to support the development of real estate that is idle or underutilized, and to provide needed housing for underserved populations. Projects may include new construction or rehabilitation projects for owner-occupancy and/or rental properties.
Home Buyer Assistance
The City of Wichita's HOMEownership 80 Program provides financial assistance with down payments and closing costs for first-time homebuyers in the City's HOMEOwnership 80 Assistance Areas. The City's HOME 80 program is made possible with annual funding through a federal grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The purpose of this program is to help citizens achieve the American dream of homeownership and to stabilize our neighborhoods.
Applications are accepted for persons who have entered into a real estate purchase contract subject to down payment assistance through the HOMEOwnership 80 Program, as long as funds are available.
