Johnson County recently contracted with ECICOG to administer a new Home Rehabilitation and Emergency Repair Program using funds appropriated through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The program is intended to benefit low-income households with older adults, residents with chronic health problems, and young children. Households must be in Johnson County outside Iowa City limits. Some examples of the targeted improvements include roofing and gutter repairs, replacement of doors and windows, and home modifications such as grab bars or walk-in showers.
For a full description of eligible repairs, income limits, qualifying criteria, and application information for the Johnson County program, contact ECICOG Housing Specialist Deanna Robinson. To learn more about how ECICOG can support local housing programs, contact Housing Director Tracey Achenbach.
