Iowans now have a free, interactive map that shows foreclosures, county-by-county, from the recession onward.
The University of Iowa's Public Policy Center (PPC) on Thursday made public the Iowa Foreclosure Events Trend Map, which tracks state and county-level foreclosure trends for each of Iowa’s 99 counties. By selecting a statewide view or particular county on the Iowa map, users can study the number of foreclosures by quarter from 2006 through 2015. This is the first time foreclosure process data have been made available at no cost to the public. The grant for the project came from the attorney general's office in Iowa.
