Urban Revitalization Program

The City of Dubuque Urban Revitalization Program, based on Chapter 404 of the Code of Iowa, focuses on the revitalization of residential properties in the community’s older neighborhoods and offers a property tax exemption for new improvements made to qualified residential properties and limited commercial properties.

Owners who upgrade their residential properties located within a designated Urban Revitalization district may receive a 10-year exemption from the property tax liability that would normally accompany numerous property improvements. Owners of commercial properties within the Washington Neighborhood district are eligible for a three-year exemption.

For additional information, contact the Housing and Community Development Department or call us at 563.589.4212.
