Of course, the most significant impact we hope to achieve is to make Southern Chester County a place where families of all income levels can live sustainably. Low-income adults work many essential positions in our community and deserve to live where they work, in safe and comfortable housing. Our goal is to create housing so that families in poverty or in the ALICE category can access housing at a rent they can sustain over the long term (no more than 30% of their household income).
With the CHDO designation, KACS Housing Initiative program is ready to become a substantial part of the housing solution. KACS will be able to secure state funding both for renovations and other capital expenses related to the property intended to become affordable housing for low- to moderate-income households, and for staff salary support to oversee KACS Housing Initiative Program efforts.
