The program is dedicated to ensuring that the neighborhoods surrounding downtown and the University of Iowa campus remain vital, safe, affordable and attractive places to live and work for renters and homeowners.
To date, over 60 properties have been renovated and sold as owner-occupied homes through the program. The City plans to continue its efforts by rehabbing and selling an additional 3-4 homes per year.
