Moderate Income Housing (MIH) Program
The Moderate Income Housing program serves the needs of moderate-income households that don’t qualify for federal housing assistance. MIH grants and/or loans are awarded to cities and counties to develop multi-family rental units and single-family for-purchase homes in communities with populations fewer than 60,000 people. Housing is the silent crisis that affects all of Kansas. But shortages of safe, affordable housing have the greatest impact on our rural communities.
Communities Served: 67

“A priority for KHRC is connecting policy makers, communities, and stakeholders and instilling the importance of Unlocking Home. Investing in quality, affordable housing will strengthen our communities, build our economy, and promote the health and happiness of Kansans. It all starts with Home. KHRC is honored to take the lead in this vital effort.”
John and Lisa Coleman and their three children relocated to Kansas in 2007. In 2008 they purchased their home through KHRC’s First Time Homebuyer Program, receiving assistance with their down payment and closing costs. The Colemans have been actively involved in local sports, arts, and church activities, taking full advantage of the many opportunities their home community has to offer.

My husband died in 2018 and we have been renting an apartment. The boys are both excited about getting a dog as well as having their very own rooms, especially my oldest son who was diagnosed with Autism when he was two. I received my late husband’s Social Security benefits plus recently started a part time job as an attendant at the Thunderbird Motel. I never dreamed we would be able to find a beautiful new 3 bedroom home in our price range!
The Lee Lofts opened in 2020 after nearly 12 years of planning. The modern lofts are housed inside the historic H.D. Lee Mercantile building, the same building where Lee Jeans was founded. The developer utilized HOME and LIHTC funds in addition to other funding sources to convert the 100-year-old building into a 53-unit complex complete with available retail space. The project provides affordable housing to residents and a boost to Salina’s downtown redevelopment.
