Southwest Iowa Housing Trust Fund

The Southwest Iowa Housing Trust Fund, Inc. was created in 2006 with a mission to "improve affordable housing options in southwest Iowa." We currently assist over 100 homes with over $1.5 million in funding each year. We continue to address housing needs in the counties of Cass, Fremont, Harrison, Mills, Montgomery, Page, and Shelby.

 

Our services fall into the following areas:

 

Housing Repairs to address health, safety, and energy efficient deficiencies in owner-occupied homes. We currently maintain a lengthy waiting list. Most common work items are roofs, furnaces, and windows.

 

Homeownership Assistance to help lower income households purchase their own home. The assistance is in the form of 5-year forgivable loans and low interest loans.

  

Demolition of blighted properties removes dilapidated homes from the housing stock. The home must be city owned.  The program will pay for 50% of asbestos inspection and removal and demolition costs.

SWIPCO is an equal opportunity provider, employer, and lender.
