ARPA Building Opportunities for the Disabled & Elderly (ABODE)
During the pandemic, many individuals who are elderly or disabled faced housing issues which disrupted their access to medical care, food and other services. High needs populations struggled with housing access and availability prior to the pandemic, and COVID-19 intensified those issues. This program will provide funding for new construction and renovation of affordable multi-dwelling housing units that provide health and safety accommodations for older adults and people with disabilities.
The Kansas Department of Commerce (KDC) has sought applications from entities working to provide accommodated housing for individuals who are elderly or disabled and desire to expand or construct new residential multi-housing facilities. This program seeks to provide funding for advanced housing to support health and safety needs while creating a community of resources to enhance each individual’s quality of life.
