City of Iowa City - Housing and Community Development Commission (HCDC)
Grants to Iowa nonprofit organizations, for-profits, and housing providers to develop urban communities in eligible regions. A pre-application is required prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for affordable housing activities, including acquisition, rehabilitation, new construction, or direct assistance for renter- or owner-occupied housing. Projects should benefit Iowa City.
The CDBG program helps develop viable urban communities by providing decent housing and suitable living environments, and expanding economic opportunities, principally for persons of low and moderate income. The HOME program helps provide safe and decent affordable housing. Both programs are funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
First consideration for funding will go to housing (not including Community Housing Development Organizations [CHDO] operating expenses) and public facility projects of $50,000 or more.
All proposals must benefit low-moderate income individuals. The specific ways that a project must accomplish the program’s purpose (also called a National Objective) varies by program.
