About Us

IowaHousingSearch.org, Iowa's premier housing locator service, was created to help people list and find safe and decent, affordable, accessible and, when necessary, emergency housing. This web-based service, supported by a toll-free call center, provides information for the general public as well as for housing professionals seeking vital resources for their clients.

Background

Launched in November 2013, IowaHousingSearch.org is funded by Iowa Finance Authority. IowaHousingSearch.org fosters collaboration among Iowa landlords, various housing organizations and Iowans seeking rental housing. The initiative is supported by an advisory group of representatives from agencies, organizations and professional associations from across the state.
