City of Belle Plaine, Kansas

Pre-applications for Housing Rehab
available for City residents

A pre-application for Housing Rehabilitation funds is available for Belle Plaine residents who are interested.

The City is applying for $300,000 in Housing Rehabilitation funding and would like to have initial commitments from residents who are interested. The pre-applications will help show there are people interested in the program and where to target the funding.

A committee of nearly 15 local residents has been working on the grant application. They will present the initial application to the state on July 19, so the pre-applications from homeowners need to be turned in to City Hall by July 18.

The program is designed to help low to moderate income residents. The qualification chart is on the pre-application.
