Public Housing

Planters II HousingLeavenworth has two options for low income housing managed by the City:

  • Planters II is a 105-unit, 10-story, high-rise public housing apartment building at 200 Shawnee Street in downtown Leavenworth. It is intended for persons over the age of 62 or persons with medically-certified disabilities. Residents pay 30% of their gross monthly income for rent. Total tenant income must be below 80% of the community's median income, which for a single occupancy is about $39,900 for one and $45,700 for two. There is usually a waiting list, ordered on a first-come basis.
    There are 100 one-bedroom apartments, nine of which are fully handicapped-accessible (e.g. drop down counter tops, extra wide doorways with pocket doors, extra bathroom accommodations) and four 2-bedroom apartments and a resident manager's apartment. Ninety-seven apartments have a view of the Missouri River. Other apartments have a view of historic downtown Leavenworth. Call 682-2200.
  • Section 8 (Housing Choice Voucher Program) is a tenant based rental assistance program for low and moderate income households. Qualified applicants receive a voucher and enter into a lease with a participating property owner within Leavenworth county. The City of Leavenworth manages up to 300 voucher holders through the Section 8 program. The section 8 waiting list (Housing Choice Voucher Program) is currently closed, if you have any questions feel free to email Pat Tooley, or call 682-2200.
