(KAIR)--The City of Atchison is seeking developers, contractors, and investors “to collaborate on an application to the Kansas Housing Resources Corporation for resources, [such as grant or tax credit funds] to assist in the development of new housing units in the Atchison market.”

According to a release from the City, Kansas Governor Laura Kelly signed “two major bipartisan housing bills into law.” The release explains that the measures “represent a combined $62 million in new housing resources, as well as initiatives to incentivize housing development.”

The release states that the City of Atchison “is planning to sponsor one or more applications for funding in the November 2022 round of funding and planning efforts are beginning immediately.”

The release notes that housing was listed as a high priority in the City’s 2020 Strategic Plan, and “qualifying partners and projects must be aligned with the City of Atchison’s 2020 Strategic Plan, have thorough and well developed plans to create new housing units in the Atchison market [including multi-family and/or single family], and partners must have prior experience in the development/construction business.”

Detailed project plans and project-related financial information must be provided, and all local and state codes met.

Interested partners should email to begin the vetting and application process.
Applications received after July 1 will not be considered for the current round of funding.
