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.

Program Update

Pilot Home Ownership Programs were successfully completed in 2018 and 2019 in the following North Central Kansas locations:  City of Marysville, Cloud County, Ellsworth County, Lincoln County and Mitchell County. Funds are currently depleted in those locations. Due to program success, we are continuing to work on expanding the pilot to more locations.
