The DNR Derelict Building Grant Program awarded grants to 13 small, rural Iowa communities to help deconstruct or renovate abandoned structures, remove asbestos and limit construction and demolition materials going to the landfill. Jon Foster, an ISOSWO member who currently serves on the Board of Directors, serves on the review committee to ensure the applicants have plans to follow the solid waste rules and regulations in their service areas.

To learn about the projects that will receive a total of $396,864 as reimbursement grants, visit the DNR's website.

The DNR Derelict Building Grant Program was instituted by statute to help rural communities with populations of 5,000 or less. DBGP funding is awarded annually on a competitive basis with cash matches required. If your community is interested in the program, the next application deadline is February 20, 2020.
