The Kansas Housing Resources Corporation is asking for proposals for using $2 million in state funding for rural moderate-income housing.

The program is open to communities across Kansas with populations of less than 60,000 residents. The grants and loans are for building multi-family or single-family housing, to rehabilitate housing and to build utility extensions to support new developments.

Ten nonprofit groups and public housing agencies in Kansas have been awarded $1.2 million to help renters find affordable housing.

The Kansas Housing Resources Corporation announced the grants Wednesday. They say the funds can be used on subsidies for renters or to help them pay utilities and security deposits. 

The award money comes from the federal government but the grants are administered by the state's housing corporation, an independent agency with a board appointed by the governor.
