What We Do

The Great Bend Housing Authority (GBHA) provides affordable housing through two different programs. The first program is a Section 8 low-income housing program providing affordable housing at the High Rise, located at 1101 Kansas Avenue in downtown Great Bend. The second program is a housing assistance program for low-income individuals to apply for Section 8 assistance for privately owned housing with other landlords in the Great Bend community. Both programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
