The Housing and Community Services Department partners with community agencies and other City Departments to address a variety of needs to enhance the quality of life for residents and neighborhoods. Contracts for social services related programs are administered by the Community Investments Division.
The Housing and Community Services Department also provides a range of services for homeowners, renters and persons who are in need of housing.
Current homeowners may receive funds for repairs to address health and safety needs. Assistance is available for persons who meet income and other eligibility criteria.
Wichita Housing Authority programs include Public Housing and Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. Both programs have limited resources and long waiting lists.
A rental assistance program is also available for persons who are chronically homeless according to federal guidelines. The Housing First program requires that participants agree to weekly case management meetings.
These programs are described in detail throughout this website.
