Anawim Housing is proud to help Iowa communities recover from the devastating August Derecho.
Anawim Housing has been awarded $364,000 through the Iowa Finance Authority to assist people displaced by the August 10, 2020 Derecho in the 12 most affected counties in Iowa.
In order to qualify for the rental assistance, rental deposit or utility deposit funds, persons must have had their primary home damaged by the weather event and been displaced. Other income restrictions apply to be eligible for funding. “This funding allows for people who have had to move from their apartments or homes due to the Derecho to find and maintain safe and stable housing” according to Andrea Baldwin, who is working to administer the grant funding. Those who qualify are eligible to receive help in connecting with other critical stabilization services including connection to credit repair and employment services.
