Time Sensitive Application: Iowa Rent and Utility Assistance Program

March 1, 2021

The Iowa Finance Authority (IFA) has made available an eligibility pre-check tool that potential applicants may use to determine if they qualify for the new Iowa Rent and Utility Assistance Program. Full applications will be accepted in March. The program will provide financial assistance to eligible COVID-19 impacted Iowans for rent and utility costs for a period of up to 12 months. Renters in need of assistance are encouraged to take the pre-check to determine if they meet the initial eligibility criteria, and if so, to sign-up to receive notification when the full application is available.  

The pre-check tool and additional information can be found on the Iowa Housing Recovery website.
