Dubuque receives $1.3 million housing grant

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The City of Dubuque will receive a $1.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The money will help stimulate the housing market.

"This grant invests in Dubuque's economic future at a very crucial time. Dubuque is a growing city and a true economic success story . As Iowa continues to recover from the economic downturn, investing in our neighborhoods and cities is key to achieving successful growth," Congressman Bruce Braley said.

The Community Development Block grant program is sponsored by HUD and aims to develop housing and expand economic opportunities specifically for low to moderate-income workers.
