WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today announced that the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has awarded Iowa a total of $101,056 in grants under the Housing Counseling Program.  The funds will go toward counseling services to homebuyers, homeowners, low-to-moderate-income renters, and the homeless to expand homeownership and improve access to affordable housing.  Harkin is a senior member of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds HUD.

“Quality, affordable housing is a necessity and any funds that can go toward expanding access to it is money well-spent,” said Harkin.  “I congratulate all of these recipients on this competitive funding and look forward to the improvements it will generate.”

The funding was awarded as follows:

Center for Siouxland – $25,000
Eastern Iowa Regional Housing Authority – $24,465
