JOPLIN, Mo. — A plan to improve housing options in Joplin is getting a big financial boost.
Joplin Council members have voted to spend a million dollars toward the city’s Housing Revitalization Plan.
The money will cover costs to tear down dilapidated houses, one of many housing-related steps in the “Proposition Action” use tax election last year.
City leaders will offer the incentive to developers who remove run-down homes and replace them with new single family housing.
The city will start taking applications on April 1st.
