Money may be allocated to fund three new Iowa City projects.

The Iowa City Housing and Community Development Commission made a recommendation to amend the fiscal 2014 Annual Action Plan at an Aug. 15 meeting to allocate uncommitted Community Development Block Grant and HOME funds for two housing projects and one public-facility project.

The resolution proposes to use $234,997 for a UniverCity owner-occupied rehabilitation project and the Housing Fellowship rental rehab, as well as a public-facility project for the Johnson County Crisis Center to improve its parking lot.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires Iowa City to prepare and submit an Annual Action Plan as part of the City’s Consolidated plan, or CITY STEPS, to plan for the use of federal funds to assist lower-income residents with housing, jobs, and services.

Adoption of the amended fiscal 2014 Annual Action Plan is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Iowa City City Council will vote on the resolution at its Oct. 15 meeting.
