  • Have income at or below HUD-specified income limits
  • Qualify on the basis of citizenship or the eligible immigrant status of family embers
  • Provide social security number information for household members as required
  • Consent to the Housing Authority’s collection and use of family information as provided for the Housing Authority-provided consent forms

KCKHA will determine that the current or past behavior of household members does not include activities that are prohibited by HUD or the KCKHA.
If the family is eligible for assistance, KCKHA will notify the family in writing and schedule a tenant briefing. If KCKHA determines that a family is not eligible for the program for any reason, the family will be notified of the decision in writing within 10 business days of the determination. An applicant will have the opportunity for an informal review of a decision denying assistance. A request for an informal review must be made in writing and delivered to KCKHA.
