Manhattan, KS- The North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging (NC-FH AAA) announced today that Paul Shipp, managing attorney with Flint Hills Legal Services will present a Zoom seminar that focuses on information on low-income housing, housing assistance and their legal rights. The Answers for Older Kansans (AOK) seminar will happen on Thursday, May 12th at 5:30 pm.
The Low-Income Housing: A Good Legal Option for Seniors seminar will cover why low-income housing is a good choice for seniors, especially those living on fixed incomes. Shipp will also discuss the public policy behind low-income housing, why it’s a good decision for seniors who are struggling to live independently and how this type of housing often helps individuals live independently longer and delay going to nursing homes.
Rights that seniors have in low-income housing and preventing arbitrary evictions will also be discussed. Information about Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and the Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) programs
will also be available.
Registrations must be made by close of business on May 11–the day before the seminar– and can be completed at www.ncfhaaa.com/seminars or by calling 1-800-432-2703.
