Grants to Iowa municipalities and tribal governments to address the community housing and development needs of eligible local communities. Funding is intended to train local government officials to use publicly available data to benefit their communities. Local officials will use the training to implement changes through development codes, local ordinances and housing incentives specific to individual community needs. Cities must have a population of 20,000 or fewer and should not be contiguous to a city with a population of 40,000 or greater.
In partnership with Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach’s Rural Housing Readiness Assessment workshops, funding from the program will empower communities to assess their current development environment and enact changes resulting in the creation of policies and procedures attractive to potential developers.
