Affordable Rentals

Tenants to Homeowners (TTH) maintains more than 100 affordable rental homes in Lawrence for those with low to moderate incomes.
We have several rental programs designed for varying needs:

  • 20 accessible units which house people with physical disabilities;
  • 14 senior units for people 62 and over;
  • 24 senior units for people 55 and over;
  • 54 units to house individuals and families who cannot otherwise afford stable housing in Douglas County.

 

It is the policy of Tenants to Homeowners to provide services without regard to race, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, familial status, physical handicap or disability.

Due to the number of applications we receive, we cannot show units to prospective residents until we have approved their application.

There is no standard wait period. Wait time depends on availability of units. Many of our vacancies are filled through applications already on file. Pre-approved applicants in applicant pools will be considered first for any upcoming vacancies.

Please read the program information below to identify which program may better meet your needs. For more information or to request assistance in completing a FREE application, please contact us at 785.842.5494.
