---- — The City of Knoxville is considering a CDBG Housing Fund grant application to the Iowa Economic Development Authority for funding of an Owner-occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program.

The proposed program could provide financial assistance to income-qualifying homeowners with the rehabilitation of their homes.

Financial assistance would be available as a five-year forgivable loan for 100 percent of the rehabilitation cost up to $24,999 per housing unit.

The City is currently looking to identify areas of interest around the community.

If your household is interested in participating in a housing rehabilitation program please visit City Hall to fill out an interest form or call 641-828-0550.
