Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations, and city and county governments for the reuse and recycling of abandoned commercial or public buildings. Funding is intended to support the deconstruction, renovation, and remediation of building hazards in order to remove the environmental and health concerns these buildings may pose. Applicants must commit to keeping at least 30 percent of the structure waste from the local landfill.
Many rural Iowa communities struggle with abandoned or vacant (derelict) commercial buildings. These structures pose an environmental and economic detriment to their communities. In Iowa, abandoned structures deteriorate at a rate that can affect the Iowans’ health and safety due to lack of maintenance and responsible ownership. Many of these buildings present health hazards like asbestos, compromised structural integrity and hazardous chemicals. They also impair local growth by diminishing property values and increasing maintenance costs for rural communities.
The DNR Derelict Building Grant Program emphasizes landfill diversion through the reuse and recycling of building items. Applicants wishing to remove buildings must keep at least 30 percent of the structure waste, by weight, from the local landfill. Diverting building materials from the landfill benefits the town by reducing project disposal costs. The program also helps improve street appearance and lessens financial and environmental impacts. This approach has benefited 122 rural communities across the state by saving them a combined $1.5 million in landfill disposal fees.
Improving Environment and Rebuilding Communities:
Rural communities can remove the environmental, health and safety concerns these buildings pose by remediating hazards, deconstructing, renovating,or a combination of all three activities. Since its inception, the program has awarded more than $2 million to rural communities across Iowa.
