KCMO Draft Housing Policy

UNI convened an Affordable Housing Task Force over several months. Twenty-four recommendations were sent to the City, the great majority of which were included in this draft policy. Several ordinances and resolutions based upon the draft policy are under consideration. Community listening sessions have been held across the City to get input. Feedback from those sessions will be integrated into the draft policy in January and be finalized.
