Over the past several years, Coffey County Housing Authority (CCHA) has obtained and administered in excess of a million dollars worth of housing Preservation/Rehabilitation grants. These grants have been used for home repairs including roofs, windows, ramps and various needed construction projects. Applicants must meet guidelines and provide all required paperwork. This program is active only when funding is available, contact CCHA for an application or for more information and guidelines.
The developers Incentive program is designed to assist contactors in building affordable residential spec homes in Coffey County. CCHA will pay the interest of a project up to $2500 to a lending institution on the purchase of materials for an affordable new construction spec home outlined by our area income guidelines. An application must be completed by the contractor, a bank letter of intent and all guidelines followed before it goes to the CCHA board for approval.
Rental Resource Guide
CCHA provides at no charge to landlords and tenants a listing of current property in the County to rent. Landlords list their properties with CCHA and we distribute to all areas we can. Renters are then able to obtain the guide by Facebook, email, fax, or by stopping by the office. This will help them find housing in Coffey County. The resource guide is updated as changes occur and notification is received at the office.
CCHA has implemented programs for buying, moving and refurbishing affordable homes in Coffey County. Anyone with proper financing can purchase one of these homes. CCHA currently has a house available in Waverly and more coming.
CCHA has information on First Time Homebuyers programs, USDA loan applications and information about what local banks are offering.
CCHA will go to the Commissioners to waive landfill fees for homeowners wishing to demolish their homes. Homeowners may apply if funding is available. There are guidelines to this program.
Moderate Income Rental Housing
In 2016, the Coffey County Housing Authority received a grant for moderate income housing through Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC). This grant provided CCHA with $150,000 toward building a moderate income triplex. The ground was broke on June 1, 2016. These units are 2 bedrooms, 1 bath. The units were completed in late fall and rented by January 1, 2017.
Affordable New Construction Housing
CCHA has sold 25 new construction homes in Coffey County. Anyone with proper financing can purchase these homes.
