New fiscal year means new round of funding for Accessory Apartment Incentive Grant Program

July 16, 2019 – FYI, News

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.
