The ADU Grant provides up to $40,000 towards pre-development and non-reoccurring closing costs associated with the construction of the ADU. Predevelopment costs include site prep, architectural designs, permits, soil tests, impact fees, property survey, and energy reports.
All funds for the Accessory Dwelling Unit Grant program were fully reserved as of 03/01/2023. We are keeping grant program information available to help borrowers and lenders as they continue to process grants in their pipeline.
