Housing preservation initiatives announced

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that South Central Iowa Community Action Program has received a grant in the amount of $90,784.86 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development program. This funding will help low-income households with various housing preservation projects, including electrical wiring, roof repair and replacement, repair and/or replacement of water and waste systems, energy conservation measures, handicap accommodations, and heating system repair and/or replacement.

“Providing assistance for those in need to make the necessary investments in their homes is important for low-income folks to be able to remain in their homes and not get forced out due to poor living conditions,” said Loebsack. “These needed improvements will help improve the quality of life opportunities for rural Iowans and I look forward to seeing the improvements made with this funding.”
