GROW program now accepting applications to bring more housing to Adams County

The GROW program is hoping to address the housing shortage in Adams County.

The Great River Economic Development Foundation, along with Adams County, is now accepting applications for the Growing Residential Opportunities County-Wide (GROW) program.

The program will offer a $20,000 incentive per unit to developers looking to construct new residential units on a vacant lot.

GREDF President Kyle Moore says that developers have already shown interest in the program before applications opened on April 16.

“There’s been a lot of interest from local developers, the Home Builders Association, and individuals who might have a property that may not have been affordable to develop with the recent rise in building cost and the interest rate increase that we’ve seen,” said Moore.

GREDF will be hosting two seminars to give more information on the program.

One training session will be on April 23rd at 4:00 p.m. at the Oakley-Lindsay Center, as well as a session over Zoom on May 1st at 12:00 p.m., which will be posted to GREDF’s website.
