New fiscal year means new round of funding for Accessory Apartment Incentive Grant Program
The City and Borough of Juneau distributed 13 grants through its Accessory Apartment Incentive Grant Program last year. The program provides $6,000 in funding for homeowners that add an accessory apartment to their home. Now, a new fiscal year means a new round of program funding – 16 accessory apartment grants are available. The goal of the program is to create new housing opportunities in the community. Juneau is in need of more studio and 1-bedroom apartments. For more information on the program, contact Brenwynne Grigg in Community Development at 586-0766 or Brenwynne.Grigg@juneau.org.
CBJ has also partnered with True North Federal Credit Union to create the Mobile Home Down Payment Assistance Program for Juneau residents looking to purchase a mobile home. The program provides low interest loans to qualified residents for up to 50% of the down payment. So if you need assistance with a down payment to buy a mobile home, call True North Federal Credit Union at 523-4710 to check out how to qualify.
