Governor Laura Kelly signed Senate Bill 17, which updates the Kansas Reinvestment Housing Incentive District Act (RHID) to open up the program to the entire state and adds guardrails to prioritize the development of affordable housing. RHID provides local government a financing tool to work with developers to address housing shortages. Governor Laura Kelly. “After landing some of the largest economic development projects in our state’s history, we must have the resources in place for workers to fill those roles, and that means making sure we have accessible housing in every corner of the state. I am pleased the legislature came together to address this need for Kansans to keep our economy growing.”
