Making affordable housing a reality in Dodge City

3 Oct 2016

Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies issued its “State of the Nation’s Housing” report in June. Per the report, the vacancy rate in rental housing is lower than it has been since 1985 while the number of renters paying more than 30 percent of their incomes for housing has reached a record high.

The Dodge City Housing Authority is working to make decent, safe and affordable housing a reality for lower income households in Dodge City, Kansas. The Housing Authority has several options for area families, including: 303 units of public housing, housing vouchers to help pay for private housing and a homeownership assistance program.

Participants in these programs pay 30 percent of their adjusted gross income toward housing and utilities each month. Find out more:
