Diversity and Inclusion

​​We Were Founded on Fair Housing

At Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), we believe that access to safe, affordable housing is a basic human right. We are committed to eradicating discrimination and discriminatory practices in housing as well as to ensuring racial equity. It was the reason we were founded. For years, Black Kentuckians were deprived of affordable housing. There were few options, and they were all deplorable.

MS Kidd at Governors Housing Conference

Rep. Mae Street Kidd, the founder of our organization, a Black woman, and a champion of affordable housing, pushed for change, urging her fellow legislators to extend all Kentuckians basic human rights. As a result, she sponsored bills that prohibited racial discrimination in housing and that provided first-time homebuyers low-interest loans. She gave a voice to the underrepresented, oppressed people she served, and today, we continue her fight.

Our Pledge

​At Kentucky Housing Corporation, people of all races, religions, genders, and sexual identities have always been and continue to be welcome.​ We pledge to do better. We strive to fight discriminatory housing practices, to end racial injustice in housing, to ensure equity and to be more inclusive in everything we do.​
