Housing Assistance Resources

The City of Overland Park believes it is essential for our residents to have safe and secure housing. The City partners with a range of community organizations to ensure that resources are available in our community. This page serves as a directory to help you find information about assistance and programs. 

Rent, Mortgage, and Utility Assistance

Local non-profit agencies receive allocations from Overland Park’s Community Development Block Grant funds to provide direct assistance to low-and moderate income households. Up to three months of assistance may be available to qualified households. For those seeking assistance, apply directly to one of the following partner agencies who currently receive City Community Development Block Grant funds:

The City also supports Johnson County’s Aging and Human Services department to provide rental assistance and utility assistance to Overland Park residents. 

Home Repair Assistance

Low and moderate-income homeowners who would like to repair their homes may be able to benefit from a few different programs. 

Minor Home Repair

The City partners with Johnson County Housing Services to provide Minor Home Repair services. The program provides limited assistance to address repairs that, if left unattended, would have a direct impact on the health and safety of, or accessibility for, the homeowner. Repair work focuses on internal and external improvements, including mechanical systems in the home, and devices or modifications, to make the home accessible. Limited code citations may also be addressed. Renters with a disability may be able to receive accessibility improvements under this program.

Residents can also apply for minor and critical home repair as well as weatherization services through Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City’s Home Preservation Program. Homeowners who receive services from Habitat for Humanity are required to contribute 10 hours of sweat equity towards the project.

Johnson County Housing Services also operates the HOME Program to address major home repairs. This assistance is provided as a forgivable loan. 

Home Weatherization

In November 2023, the City of Overland Park launched a pilot home weatherization program for low-income households. Through a partnership with East Central Kansas Economic Opportunity Corporation (ECKAN), eligible households can receive energy efficiency improvements focused on heating and cooling efficiency and energy savings valued up to $15,000.

Learn more about this opportunity on the ECKAN website.

Services for Vulnerable Populations

The City provides Community Development Block Grant funds to nonprofit organizations who serve people experiencing homelessness or fleeing domestic violence. Shelter services and case management assistance to find stable housing may be provided. Apply directly to the partner agency if you are seeking assistance. 

Fair Housing

The City seeks to ensure that everyone has equal opportunity to housing in Overland Park. If you have experienced housing discrimination based on your race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender and sexual orientation), familial status or disability status, you can submit a complaint to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.

You can report housing discrimination by phone at 1-800-669-9777 or TTY: 1-800-877-8339.
