Diverse housing options in our communities enhance the strength and prosperity of our economy, so all of us can do well. Maybe you’ve heard the “not in my backyard” argument. The small number of outliers who oppose housing expansion are more likely than supporters to make their opinions heard. Now is the time to roll out the welcome mat across the state. We need you, the community champions, to have your voices heard about the importance for housing for all Iowans.
The State of Iowa is launching a program called Welcome Home, Iowa to show support for affordable housing in rural communities. It is our hope that this will lead to funds being allocated to rural, small communities for affordable housing developments.
