Through The Davenport DREAM Project, funding is available to turn your dream into a reality.

Would a new fence, siding or a coat of paint turn your house into a home? Could a financial grant give you the power to build your dream home? The Davenport DREAM Project can help current and future homeowners and DIY-ers build vibrant spaces within the City of Davenport, all while engaging and building a more connected community.

The Davenport DREAM Project is a neighborhood restoration project that hopes to inspire a renewed interest in the unique architecture and character found in the City of Davenport’s heritage neighborhoods. We know that the restoration of one home leads to the rebuilding and engagement of an entire community.

The Davenport DREAM Project has completed 3 rounds with tremendous response from the Davenport community. So far, over 140 homeowners have been assisted with residential façade improvements. Applications are now being accepted until June 3, 2022 for Round 4. Click below to submit your application request.
