$28.2 million Awarded to Iowa Communities

Des Moines, IA (July 11, 2011) – Awards totaling $28.2 million were announced today for 86 communities across the state.  The Iowa Department of Economic Development (IDED) awarded the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to support 88 community investment projects.  The federally funded grants were awarded for community facilities, infrastructure improvements, and single family owner-occupied housing rehabilitation.

 

"These funds are critical to maintaining the high quality of life Iowans expect and deserve in some of the smallest cities and rural areas of the state," said Governor Terry Branstad.  "Modern infrastructure, quality housing, and first class community facilities are just as much about economic development as they are about people.  These investments will pay dividends for our state long after these projects are completed.”

 

CDBG funds will leverage more than $34 million in local funds from Iowa's communities.  The program enables communities to make needed improvements to water and sewer systems, improve housing conditions for low-income homeowners, and develop the best child care facilities for Iowa’s youth.

 

IDED received 141 applications for these funds, totaling more than $44.2 million in funding requests.  The grants are awarded based on the financial need and potential impact of the project, benefit to low- and moderate-income persons, and commitment of local resources to moving the project forward.

 

The Community Development Block Grant program is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  IDED is responsible for administering the CDBG funds in the non-metropolitan areas of the state.  Applications are solicited annually, usually during the fall.  For more information on CDBG or other community programs, phone 515.725.3081, email community@iowa.gov, or visit www.iowalifechanging.com .
