Grants to help build homes in Cedar Rapids

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Federal grants will help build new homes as part of disaster recovery efforts in the state.

$17 million in community block grants will help construct 343 owner-occupied homes throughout the state.

Nearly half those funds will help build 177 residences in Cedar Rapids.

That includes 94 single-family houses and 83 condominiums.

To be considered you must have below-median incomes, but still be able to support mortgages.

New homeowners could also qualify for down payment assistance amounting to as much as 30 percent of the home.
