CITY APPLYING FOR HOUSING REHABILITATION FUNDING

The City of Storm Lake is preparing a grant application for a Community Development Block Grant from the State of Iowa.  If approved, this would provide funding for a housing rehabilitation program within a designated neighborhood between N. Lake Avenue and N. Russell Street, and E. 13th Street and E. Flindt Drive.  The grant money is used to hire contractors to assist qualified homeowners in making repairs and improvements to their homes.  Typical repairs may include roofing, foundation repair, window repair and/or replacement, siding, electrical as well as heating and plumbing work.

Grants are very hard to get because there is a lot of competition among communities throughout the state.  Only about 25% to 30% of those that apply will actually be awarded a grant. 

In order to help document the need for this program, we are asking interested homeowners to contact City Hall (712-732-8000).  Any information provided is kept strictly confidential.
