$52 Million Awarded To Iowa Communities

DES MOINES -- Awards totaling $52 million were announced today for 19 communities across the state. The Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) awarded the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds to support 26 multi-family new production projects. These federally funded awards will assist communities to recover housing lost during the catastrophic flooding event of 2008.

IEDA received 67 applications for these funds, totaling more than $112.2 million in funding requests. The grants are awarded based on the potential impact of the project, benefit to low- and moderate-income persons, and commitment of developer and local resources to moving the project forward in a timely manner.

The Community Development Block Grant program is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). IEDA is responsible for administering the CDBG funds for disaster recovery. For more information on CDBG visit
