Applications for the CDBG Downtown Revitalization Fund must meet one HUD national objective. The national objective most applicable to Downtown Revitalization Fund projects is the elimination of the slum and blight. To address the slum and blight national objective, the application must document the extent or seriousness of deterioration or blight in the area to be assisted, illustrating that the proposed activity will alleviate or eliminate the conditions causing the deterioration or blight. A comprehensive, detailed building survey as well as a resolution from the local government applicant is necessary to meet this national objective.
Communities interested in using the low-to-moderate income (LMI) benefit as a national objective under this program application must contact IEDA in advance to determine its appropriateness for an application under this program.
Projects funded under the Downtown Revitalization program must meet the Iowa Green Street Criteria. The Iowa Green Streets Criteria promote public health, energy efficiency, water conversation, smart locations, operational savings and sustainable building practices. For more information, visit the Green Streets web site at http://www.iowaeconomicdevelopment.com/CommunityDevelopment/green.
