I certify that the information presented in this application is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge and belief. I authorize Kansas Housing Resources Corporation (KHRC) and any other Federal or state agency, to verify and investigate such information, and commit my full cooperation at any time. I understand that providing false, misleading or incomplete information may result in the application being declared void and may result in my having to repay any funds I have received on my tenant's behalf. I understand that it is a criminal violation under Kansas law to make a false statement in writing for the purpose of procuring assistance from a state agency.
I acknowledge and agree to the requirement that I must not evict the renter for non-payment of rent associated with any of the months for which the rent relief payment is made. Furthermore, I understand that KHRC funds cannot be used to pay rent charged prior to April 1, 2020. I understand if the renter owes past due rent charged prior to April 1, 2020, I must work with the tenant to develop an appropriate payment plan. I certify that, as part of the intake and assessment of the household, I have attempted to assist the household with identifying other resources that may be available to them to prevent eviction without using KEPP funding, including savings, linkages to mainstream and natural supports. I will advise Tenant on next steps if Tenant finds they are unable to pay rent in the future. Furthermore, I acknowledge and agree to reimburse KEPP funds to KHRC if it is determined at a later date that I or my Authorized Agent(s) (identified below) recorded inaccurate information contained in the Tenant Application Packet that resulted in determining the Tenant eligible for KHRC financial assistance when Tenant was actually ineligible for said assistance. Furthermore, I release and shall hold harmless the state of Kansas, KHRC, its grantees, agents, and employees from all claims and demands that relate to or arise out of my application to the KEPP and any action or inaction taken by the state of Kansas, KHRC, its grantees, agents and employees in the administration and management of the KEPP. I shall maintain all contractual and household records for at a minimum of five years, and shall provide access to such records by KHRC as may be requested. I confirm that, in processing tenant’s application, I have complied with all applicable fair housing laws, including but not limited to, Fair Housing Law which makes it illegal to discriminate in residential housing on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, source of funds, sexual orientation, gender identity, status as a veteran, or disability.
