It’s March in the Bluegrass. Chances are, even if you’re not a sports fan, you know that means it’s NCAA March Madness time. Ah, yes. Basketball! This year, four Kentucky teams made it into the men’s tournament—UK, Louisville, NKU, and my alma mater, the Murray State Racers! On the women’s side, UK and Louisville also made it in. Congrats to all of these teams! Your hard work throughout the year has paid off.
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.
