The Derelict Building Program is available for Iowa towns of 5,000 or fewer residents’ to address neglected commercial or public structures that have sat vacant for at least 6 months.
FUNDING STILL AVAILABLE - to inspect and properly remove asbestos from abandoned commercial buildings. The funds allow eligible communities to investigate the amount of asbestos present in a building, determine the physical characteristics and stability of these structures by completing structural engineering assessments and abate identified asbestos. $50,000 is available for assistance and applications will be accepted until funds are expended.
FY19 application deadline is April 4, 2018 for applicants who are seeking funding assistance with conducting asbestos inspections, asbestos abatement, structural engineering analysis, phase I and phase II site assessments, building deconstruction and building renovation expenses.
The Program’s main focus is landfill diversion through the recycling and reuse of building materials and the elimination of hazards both inside and out posed by these empty structures. Established in 2011, the program has assisted 115 communities, diverted over 46,000 tons of materials and saved over $1.5 million in landfill disposal costs.
