Rental assistance offered

By The Active Age | December 1, 2020

Catholic Charities, Wichita, is partnering with Kansas Eviction Prevention Program to help tenants and their landlords apply for up to $5,000 in rental assistance.

The program is designed to help Kansans who are facing eviction because of financial hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The State of Kansas has designated $35 million of CARES Act funds for the program.

Applications will be processed in the order that they are received, and are being accepted through Dec. 31 or until the funds run out.

In the greater Wichita area, tenants and landlords wanting to apply for funds should call Matt Lowe at (316) 264-8344, ext. 4112. Catholic Charities’ Wichita office is helping people who live in Butler, Harvey, Reno, Sedgwick and Sumner counties.
