Dream Project 2021

Posted on 05/03/2021

May 3, 2020 - The City of Davenport has opened the third round of funding for the popular Davenport DREAM Project. $900,000 in funding is available for new and existing homeowners who would like to revitalize their properties within the DREAM Project area. Over the past two years, the DREAM Project has awarded nearly $1.8 million to revitalize 93 properties. 

“I’ve held onto my house through the different struggles life brings and hard times. I’ve had to put in a whole new basement, and renovate the interior. It’s taken a long time and I’ve been working two jobs. I just want to have a nice house,” said Laura Montano, previous DREAM recipient. “When I heard from the City that I had been selected for the DREAM Project, I started to cry. I get the opportunity to improve the exterior, and it really is just a dream come true. I just really appreciate it.” 

Applications for the Davenport DREAM Project will be accepted from May 3 – May 21, 2021. Applicants are eligible for a $20,000 grant for improvements to their property with preference given to projects making exterior façade improvements. 

DREAM Project funding is available to residents in designated neighborhoods in the community, and participants who receive funding through the DREAM Project must reside in the property to which they are making improvements.
