RESOLUTION NO. 2019-003
IOWA PRISON INDUSTRIES AFFORDABLE HOME PROGRAM
Whereas, the County of Carroll has a need for new workforce housing units that the market does not allow to be built or financed in our community; and,
Whereas, the proposed Iowa Prison Industries/Iowa Association of Councils of Governments Prisoner-Built Housing Program can help provide quality homes to rural Iowa that are affordable to low and moderate income households; and,
Whereas, this housing program can, after an initial investment of approximately $4.0 million, be self-sufficient and require no additional state investment; and,
Whereas, this housing program will reduce recidivism and provide Iowa with workers in high-demand skill areas by training inmates for careers in the construction industry.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS that the County of Carroll is in support of the Iowa Prison Industries/Iowa Association of Councils of Governments Prisoner-Built Housing Program and supports state funding requested to implement this program.
PASSED AND APPROVED by the Carroll County, Iowa Board of Supervisors this 4th day of February, 2019.
