Project Description

Greater Des Moines (GDM) Habitat for Humanity and affiliates in Cedar Valley, Iowa Heartland, Iowa Valley and Siouxland shared $12 million of NMTC to finance 94 Habitat for Humanity homes across the state. GDM alone used nearly $4.5 million in NMTC investment from Iowa Community Development to build 27 homes completed in May of 2013. GDM also built Iowa’s first homes to meet the National Association of Home Builders Emerald standard, which requires energy savings of 60 percent or more. Construction for Habitat homes across Iowa created 125 construction jobs and one full-time affiliate job, in addition to retaining 73 full-time and 16 part-time affiliate jobs.
