Pre-Application for 1 Bedroom Public Housing 



The Scott County CDA has RURAL DEVELOPMENT apartment buildings located in Jordan and Belle Plaine. The Federal aid that the Scott County CDA receives from USDA Rural Development provides project-based rental assistance* in towns where the population is less than 20,000. The apartment building in Jordan, called Britland (see brochure), has 1-3 bedroom units. The apartment building located in Belle Plaine, called Belle Haven (see brochure), has an efficiency, 1 & 2 bedroom units. Tenants receiving rental assistance pay no more than 30% of their adjusted income for rent. Applicants must meet income guidelines established by HUD. Applicants must also meet Scott County CDA eligibility requirements (rental, credit and criminal background checks).

*Not all of the units have a subsidy; however, the rent without subsidy is below market rate.
