Interested homeowners can find more information about the program and how to apply on the ADUG website.

To be eligible for the grant, homeowners must ensure that their ADU complies with building codes and passes all necessary inspections. These eligibility conditions can be found on the application form.

The Accessory Dwelling Unit Grant Program was established with the goal of promoting affordable housing in the community by encouraging homeowners to add an ADU to their property. The success of a pilot program, which provided $6,000 grants and resulted in 44 new units, led to its formalization in August 2023 and an increase in grant amount to $13,500.

Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be approved in the order they are received. For any further questions or inquiries, individuals can visit the ADUG website or contact Joseph Meyers, Housing & Land Use Specialist at [contact information].
