Housing is an important resource for all communities. In 2016 Buchanan County Economic Development Commission (BCEDC) along with the Communities of Buchanan County commissioned a housing study through Iowa Northland Regional Council of Governments (INRCOG). This study identified the specific housing needs of each community and provides a plan as well as Financial Programs and Funding Resources to help meet these housing needs.
