Does your house need a new roof? Want to build a new deck? What about replacing your windows or driveway?
Merriam residents looking to beautify their homes may be eligible for a grant!
The City is investing $120,000 in its 2023 Exterior Home Improvement Grant Program. Grant money will be available until all funding is allocated for projects. After all funding has been allocated, a wait list will be created for qualifying applications. The Exterior Home Improvement Grant can be used in conjunction with Residential Sustainability Grant, but one project can't be funded by both programs.
We're no longer accepting applications in 2023. Check back in 2024.
Application must be approved before construction can start. Applications will be processed in the order in which they are received.
If you'd like to apply in person, download the application below and bring all documents to the Planning window inside Merriam City Hall.
