Home is where your story begins. Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC) understands this very clearly, because “home” is the foundation for other successful life outcomes. This is why we have been working for more than 45 years to invest in quality housing solutions for all Kentuckians. For many of us, this housing solution takes the form of homeownership. In fact, Kentucky continues to maintain a robust homeownership rate at 67.9 percent in 2016, several points above the national average of 63.4 percent.
At Kentucky Housing Corporation (KHC), the state housing finance agency, we know that stable, safe, quality, affordable housing provides the best foundation for other successful life outcomes. Children do better in school and accomplish greater educational achievements. Housing stability produces health benefits and provides a foundation for career success. Homeownership also builds a sense of connection and civic engagement that strengthens neighborhoods and communities.
