Lieutenant governor details rental assistance awards Lt. Governor Gary Sherrer announced the award of $1,244,850 in Tenant Based Rental Assistance program funding to 18 agencies throughout the state. Funded through the federal HOME Investment Partnerships and administered by Housing Development Division of the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing, TBRA allows organizations to provide rental subsidies, utility deposits and security deposits for income-eligible individuals and families. Public housing authorities, nonprofit agencies and for-profit companies may apply for the two-year grants of up to $300,000. Bert Nash Community Mental Health Center of Douglas County was awarded a $75,000 rental assistance grant. _____________________________ Health care: Group says HealthWave experiencing mixed results A nonprofit health group said the state HealthWave program has had “mixed success” in expanding health-care coverage to uninsured children. HealthWave is a low-cost insurance program designed to serve Kansas families who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford health insurance on the open market. Enrollment in the program and Medicaid has risen by more than 49,000 children since the program started in 1999. But the Kansas Health Institute said a high number of children also leave the program for reasons that “appear to include both turnover due to program eligibility rules and administrative and technical inefficiencies.” The institute called for better marketing of the program, but conceded that the state’s slumping economy could force a dramatic rise in enrollment. _____________________________ Community: Program presents art show Allen Ford, Lawrence, inspects colored glass masks, at left, and metal figures, at right.
