Lyons Housing Authority is a current member of NAHRO.

The National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials (NAHRO), has been in existence for well over 50 years, and is located in Washington, D.C.  NAHRO’s membership is comprised of over 5,500 Individuals and 1,800 Agencies nation-wide.  Kansas NAHRO has been a Chapter within the National organization since 1962, and has been active in representing and addressing the needs of housing and community development across the state.

The purpose of the Kansas Chapter of NAHRO is to be the leading housing and community development advocate for the provision of adequate and affordable housing for all Kansans, particularly those with low and moderate incomes.  Through the processes of development, preservation, conservation and rehabilitation, Kansas NAHRO members work toward the achievement of well-planned, socially, aesthetically, ecologically, and economically sound communities.

It is the continuing goal of the Kansas Chapter to improve the standards and practices of all phases of administration directly related to the above purposes, and to develop and improve the professional standards involved in the administration of programs.  NAHRO works very closely with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Farmers Home Administration (FmHA) to achieve an effective administrative framework which shapes legislation and provides funding for housing and community development programs.  The Kansas Chapter was actively involved in legislation that created a Housing Division at the State level, now known as the Kansas Housing Resource Corporation (KHRC), which made Kansas eligible for an additional $20+ million annually from the Federal government to address housing and community development needs in the State of Kansas.

To achieve it’s objectives, the Kansas Chapter provides for the exchange of knowledge by engaging in research, publishing results of studies, conducting meetings and conferences, developing and facilitating effective federal, state and local relations among those having related housing and community development responsibilities, cooperating and collaborating with other agencies, associations, and groups, both public and private, who have similar or related purposes, and seeking, in all appropriate ways, to improve the proficiency of agencies and persons engaged in administration in the field of housing and community development.

      We are located in Lyons, Kan., and only handle housing for our facilities (Park Place and Kingswood Apartments). We do not handle all of Kansas. Your email was not specific if you would be locating to our area? On the application page of our website is a tab to print our application. You would complete and return to us to be added to our waiting list. We are public housing regulated through HUD so in order to qualify for a 3 bedroom unit there would need to be 3-6 people to house.
      If you should have any questions when filling out the application, please feel free to contact us.
