About the Division
The Housing Authority works to improve the quality of life for clients, acting as a community leader on affordable housing by providing information and education, housing assistance, and public and private partnership opportunities. The Housing Authority is a division of the City of Iowa City established in 1969 to administer housing assistance programs throughout its jurisdiction, including all of Johnson County and portions of Iowa and Washington Counties.
We currently assist more than 1,200 low-income families to acquire and maintain affordable housing through rental and ownership programs. Rental assistance includes the Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing Programs. Homeownership opportunities exist under the Tenant-to-Owner Program, Affordable Dream Homeownership Program, and the Housing Choice Homeownership Program. Participation in all programs requires the family be within federally established income guidelines.
The Housing Authority works with approximately 450 landlords. There are approximately 1214 vouchers with a total Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) contract in excess of $6 million to landlords within the Housing Authority jurisdiction.
