|The KCKHA Housing Management
Department is comprised of four (4) divisions: Resident
Elderly Services, Family
Services, and Social
department is responsible for ensuring that both residents and KCKHA staff
comply with all terms set forth in the lease agreement. They are
also responsible for determining and adjusting rents for all tenants based
on household income and regulatory guidelines as required by law and
enforced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Re-certifications for all residents are conducted yearly to ensure that
rents are adjusted according to their current household income.
The KCKHA manages 2,170 dwelling units throughout the City of Kansas City, Kansas. The units are located in hi-rise buildings, townhouse developments, and duplex and single-family units. Public housing provides a clean, safe, decent and affordable living environment for eligible lower and very low-income individuals and families. Public housing families pay 30% of their adjusted monthly income for rent and utilities or they may choose to pay a "flat rent".
Housing Management staff respond to complaints and allegations of lease violations, such as drug violations, disturbances, domestic violence and other breaches of contract. Prompt response and fair treatment of these complaints makes a significant difference between mediocrity and excellence in residential housing management. The Housing Management Department takes pride in its fair treatment of resident complaints and works closely with the Finance Department and the Staff Attorney to insure proper and efficient handling of all lease violations and enforcement of regulations.
Along those lines, the KCKHA has set up an anonymous "hotline" number that residents, or even the general public, can call to report illegal or improper activities occurring on KCKHA property. The number, which records the caller's message, is (913) 279-3HIT, or (913) 279-3448. Of course, emergency calls should always be directed to Emercency 911 service.
