Oct. 7, 2020 – Letters were received by 28 Davenport residents this week informing them that they are one of the selected recipients of the Davenport DREAM Project. 

“The Davenport DREAM Project is a neighborhood restoration project that hopes to inspire renewed interest in the unique architecture and character found in the neighborhoods of the City of Davenport,” said Letty Goslowsky, Revitalization Supervisor. “The restoration of one home leads to the rebuilding and engagement of an entire community.” 

The Davenport City Council approved $900,000 in their FY21 budget for a second round of the Davenport DREAM Project after receiving overwhelming interest and response to the DREAM Project’s initial roll out in 2019. Eligible current homeowners in a designated DREAM Project area were able to submit their applications over a three week period from May 18 to June 5.

This week applicants started receiving the final determination letters in the mail. The current 25 homeowners are approved for the $20,000 forgivable grant to be used for exterior façade improvement and outstanding code violations. Applicants who were not chosen for this round of funding will be able to apply in the future if additional rounds of the DREAM Project are approved.
