HUMBOLDT — City Administrator Larry Tucker reviewed two programs Monday evening that promise to improve Humboldt’s housing stock.
One, through a $170,000 Community Development Block Grant, will result in upgrade of nine rental properties. The other will use a $100,000 grant from the Kansas Housing Resource Corporation to make houses affordable.
Rental upgrades will be done to nine properties with five owners. Tucker said he expected remodeling — improvements to such things as heating, air conditioning, windows and general repairs — to take about two years. Owners have pledged to put money into the properties, along with grant proceeds.
