Two communities in northwest Kansas have received funds to develop moderate-income housing from the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation.

The city of Hoxie was awarded more than $380,000, while Quinter received a sum of $400,000. Stockton received $71,000.

Seven other communities throughout the state also received funding, totaling $2.1 million in assistance.

The Moderate-Income Housing Program, an initiative funded by the State of Kansas and administered by Kansas Housing Resources Corporation, works to help cities and counties develop multi-family rental units, single-family for-purchase homes, and water, sewer and street extensions in communities with populations of less than 60,000 people.

MIH funding can also be used to finance construction costs, rehabilitate unsafe or dilapidated housing, and offer down-payment and closing-cost assistance to homebuyers.
