Sioux City Affordable Housing, New House
There is a lack of affordable housing in Sioux City. Now the city has built a new home as part of new program aimed at helping low-income families. Siouxland Public Media’s Mary Hartnett has more.
The house at 861 15th Street was built using funds from the federal HOME Investment Partnership Program. Amy Kerns of the Neighborhood Services Division of Sioux City says the 1,160 square foot home costs 112-thousand dollars. Kerns says there are eligibility guidelines that potential buyers need to meet.
“The household would have to be a low-income household, they would have to get pre-qualified, fix mortgage from a local lender.”
The buyer will also need to attend one of two open houses; they’re being held Thursday, December 15th, from five-to-seven p.m. and Saturday, December 17th, from 1:00-to-3:00 p.m.. All proceeds from the home will be reinvested to create more affordable housing. For Siouxland Public Media, I’M Mary Hartnett.
