Speak Up for Affordable Housing

Home

Let Us Know Your Thoughts

Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), in collaboration with the Department for Local Government, is initiating the preparation of the State's 2020-2024 Consolidated Plan, 2020 Annual Action Plan and Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice. For this process, we are seeking your participation in a series of regional public meetings, stakeholder workshops, and an online survey. These activities are scheduled in AugustSeptember, and October 2019.

Your participation in these events is very important to this process. As practitioners in your field, we want to hear your opinions and ideas on the priority needs for the next five years—affordable housing, fair housing, public infrastructure, and facilities improvements needed to support and improve Kentucky's communities, and much more. For residents, we want to listen to your concerns about improving the quality of life for you and your families.

Consolidated Plan

The five-year Consolidated Plan will identify the affordable housing and community development needs across Kentucky over the next five years. Annually the state receives approximately $48 million in Community Development Block Grant funds, HOME Partnership Investment funds, Emergency Solutions Grant funds, Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS funds, and Housing Trust Funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). To continue receiving these funds, Kentucky is required to identify and prioritize its needs, then explain how it will address these needs through local projects.

Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice

The Analysis of Impediments to Fair Housing Choice will analyze how Kentucky is expanding housing choice among members of the protected classes. Barriers to housing choice will be identified and an Action Plan will include strategies to eliminate the barriers.
