The development team of Builders Development Corporation and Net Giver Communities, LLC, is pleased to announce the award of a $5.5 million allocation of affordable housing tax credits from the Kansas Housing Resource Corporation (KHRC) to build a 36 unit senior apartment project in South Hutchinson, Kansas. The project has also been awarded a $200,000 HOME funding grant from KHRC.
