Northeast Iowa Housing Trust Fund

Northeast Iowa Housing Trust Fund

Upper Explorerland established a Northeast Iowa Regional Housing Trust Fund for Allamakee, Clayton, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties. The Housing Assistance Plan has been approved for certification from the Iowa Finance Authority (IFA). The goal is to develop, redevelop, rehabilitate, and renovate single-family and/or multi-family owner-occupied and rental dwellings. This will be to render assistance to economically and socially disadvantaged persons in Allamakee, Clayton, Howard, and Winneshiek Counties. It will possibly fund: roof repair, furnace repair and replacement, energy efficiency updates, electrical and plumbing, handicap accessibility, homebuyer assistance, etc. Roof projects are the number one priority and are funded up to $10,000, all other projects are capped at $10,000.
