Housing Rehab Grant
The city is now taking applications for Housing Rehabilitation Grant Funds. These funds are to be used for the repair or replacement of items such as: Roofs, Siding, Furnace, Electrical, Plumbing, Windows and Foundations. In 2012 the City of Oswego was awarded a $100,000 grant from the State of Kansas for the rehabilitation of homes in Oswego. The deadline to use the grant funds is now coming to a close but there is a still a small amount of funds left that may allow for one or two more homes.
If you have previously applied and was not funded it is because your home did not meet the requirements. Each home is only allowed a maximum of $20,000 and the completed work must bring the home up to the minimum housing standards. This means large homes or homes in need of extensive repairs may not qualify unless the property owner is willing to do some of the work themselves or pay for the excess.

Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley. Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem. Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
