KHC Assumes Eviction Relief Fund Administration: Delays in HCA Staff Responses May Occur
KHC assumed administration of the $15 million Healthy at Home Eviction Relief Fund (HH-ERF) on Monday, September 21. The fund is a statewide effort to prevent Kentuckians from facing eviction and to allow landlords to realize substantial payments for back rent. It will allow tenants to remain healthy and housed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. KHC has prioritized making HH-ERF payments as quickly as possible to approved landlords on behalf of their tenants. 

Numerous KHC Housing Contract Administration (HCA) staff members have been assigned to assist with HH-ERF application processing. This may result in longer than usual response time for normal administrative activities for some HCA programs (HOME, AHTF, ESG, CoC, HOPWA), including project/activity set-up, draw processing, budgetary change requests, waiver requests, and/or document execution. 

You may experience delays through mid- to late October. We apologize for any inconvenience and greatly appreciate the patience of our partner agencies as we strive to help low-income Kentuckians keep their housing with HH-ERF assistance. 

Please contact HCA Managing Director Curtis Stauffer at if you need an expedited response from HCA due to a project/activity being placed at risk by a delayed response.
