Home Ownership Program

North Central Regional Planning Commission is proud to partner with local banks, businesses and charitable foundations to create and administer a new incentive program to make home buying more affordable through down payment and closing cost assistance.

Objectives

  • Provide a housing opportunity for alumni to relocate to North Central Kansas to work, start/buy a business, or retire
  • Assist employers in recruiting/retaining quality employees
  • Preserve housing quality through home ownership

Benefits

Let our program help make your home ownership dreams a reality. Potential benefits for buyers include:

  • Purchase your first home
  • Improve your quality of life through home ownership
  • Enjoy the convenience of living closer to friends and family
  • Reduce your commute time to work and spend that extra time with friends and family

Program Update

Pilot Home Ownership Programs were successfully completed in 2018-2020 in the following North Central Kansas locations:  City of Marysville and Cloud, Ellsworth, Lincoln, Mitchell, Ottawa and Republic Counties. Funds are currently depleted in those locations. Due to program success, we are continuing to work on expanding the pilot to more locations. Check back for future program announcements and funding opportunities or follow NCRPC on Facebook.
