KC area to get $1M in home repair grants

Posted: Updated:

Missouri Congressman Emanuel Cleaver says low-income families in the Kansas City area are expected to benefit from $1.1 million in new grants for home repairs.

Cleaver announced the grants from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines Strong Communities Fund on Friday.

The Kansas City Star reports that Central Bank of Kansas City and Kansas City's Neighborhood and Housing Services Department received two grants totaling $1 million to help about 150 low-income families in seven neighborhoods. The money will go toward home repairs, including roof replacements and electrical upgrades.

Another $100,000 will go to Commerce Bank and Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity for roof replacements in the Mount Washington neighborhood in Independence and neighborhoods in Buckner and Grain Valley.

The money becomes available in January.
