QUINCY — The Great River Economic Development Foundation will be the host of a Zoom training session at noon on Wednesday, May 1 to review the Growing Residential Opportunities County-Wide Program.

GREDF conducted a “Comprehensive Housing Needs Assessment for Adams County” last year which outlined the need for single-family houses and affordable housing options. The Adams County Board has allocated $1 million of the ARPA funds to develop the GROW program to address this need. The program focuses on developers taking abandoned houses or empty lots and turning them into housing.

The GROW program will offer a $20,000 incentive per unit to developers. The project may include the construction of a new residential unit(s) on a vacant lot, including a single-family residence, duplex, condos, townhouses, cluster homes and/or apartment complex. Development of a currently uninhabitable structure or partially uninhabited structure will be accepted. The GROW program incentive cannot exceed 50 percent of the cost of the project or $100,000, whichever is less.

Anyone interested in obtaining the Zoom link should email Madison Badgley, director of business development, at badgleym@gredf.org.

Applications to the GROW program are due to GREDF by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18. Applications can be sent via email to gredf@gredf.org or dropped off at the GREDF office.
