Support Continues For Multi-Family Housing in Sioux Center

The Sioux Center City Council shared support for potential local developers of multi-family housing projects.

The council gave official support to the developers in the case that they apply for state tax credits from a program focusing on affordable housing.

“Multi-family housing and rental housing is a growth area for Sioux Center,” said Dennis Dokter, Sioux Center economic development director. “We want to make sure developers have access to this state incentive program through Iowa Economic Development Authority if they plan to build in multi-family housing in Sioux Center and help fill the need here.”

The council passed a resolution to support the developers’ applications. The Workforce Housing Tax Incentive program requires a local match to show support, which is satisfied by the City of Sioux Center’s existing five-year tax abatement for multi-family structures built in areas marked for this kind of development.
