Iowa City Cohousing has been committed to affordable home ownership since the beginning. We already have a grant for down payment assistance for low income households. We are arranging a way for people to make tax-deductible contributions to our affordable housing funds! We will let you know the specifics soon!
A research summary on the Habitat for Humanity website* (link below) shows that:
- Homeownership leads to better health
- Homeownership leads to greater educational achievements.
- Homeownership provides better security and safety.
- Homeownership helps generate wealth building and a pathway out of poverty.
Clearly homeownership makes a difference for children, families and communities.
We will keep you posted on how you can be involved!
