The Urban League of Kansas Housing Program provide answers to questions about buying a home and more.
The goal is to empower people to achieve economic self-sufficiency through homeownership and financial education.  Counseling services are provided free of charge.

The Urban League Of Kansas now offers Section 502 direct loans. These loans are used primarily to help low-income households purchase homes. They can be used to build, repair, renovate, or relocate homes, or to purchase and prepare sites, including providing water and sewage facilities. They may also be used to refinance certain debts when necessary to avoid losing a home or when required to make necessary rehabilitation of a house affordable.


In Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, the average household income for direct borrowers was $28,600 while guaranteed loan recipients earned an average of $54,200. In addition, while slightly over 35 percent of direct loans went to non-whites and Hispanics in FY 2013, under 15 percent of guaranteed borrowers were rural minorities.

Referrals to Community Resources


The Urban League of Kansas has been in Wichita, Kansas for over 60 years now and has established working relationships with private and public service agencies that may be able to assist clients in areas where the Urban League does not have expertise. Urban League staff are trained to successfully diagnose each client’s needs and determine the best resource to help them meet those needs.  However Urban League staff will continue to provide case management services as needed, even after making referrals.
