The Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) is providing rent, utility, and internet assistance to households experiencing financial hardship as a result of the COVID pandemic through the Kansas Emergency Rental Assistance (KERA) program. To date, KHRC has paid out over $73 million in emergency rental assistance through the Kansas Emergency Rental Assistance (KERA) program, but there are still millions of dollars left that can be used to stop people from being evicted. Landlords and tenants apply via a joint online process. If the application is approved, the landlord or service provider receives funds directly from KERA and applies KERA funds to the applicant’s account. Approved applicants are eligible for up to 12 months of assistance.
If you or anyone you know are in need of assistance as a tenant or landlord, please visit the KERA website and consider sharing the following resources:
