Moderated Panel on Homelessness hosted by Trinity United Methodist Church
Our neighbors at Trinity United Methodist Church have called in a panel to help sort through the issues and options surrounding homelessness in our neighborhood. The moderated panel will include a social worker with Truman Medical Center Behavioral Health, a police officer from the Kansas City Police Department and a staff member from ReDiscover Mental Health.

Trinity invites you to join the discussion as they consider and problem-solve this complicated and challenging situation of concern to the neighborhood.

RAMP Program grants for South Hyde Parkers
There is still availability for $15k grants for home repairs/improvements from Westside Housing’s ‘RAMP Program’. These are approved on a first come, first served basis so do not delay if interested! These grants are issued as a loan/lien and are forgiven at $3k per year, so ownership is required for 5 years after the grant is issued. Should you need to sell the property before the 5 years is up, you will owe the prorated amount. A 1-1 or 2-1 match on improvement funds may be required based on your annual household income.

For more info on eligibility and requirements, you can contact Cliff at 816-708-0586 or cpouppirt@westsidehousing.org
