Merriam residents looking to beautify their homes may be eligible for an Exterior Home Improvement Grant through the City.
Merriam is investing $30,000 in the pilot program and will provide a 20 percent, or $2,500 max, reimbursement for exterior home improvements upon completion. There is no income requirement but other conditions may apply.
About the Program
Homeowners need to have at least $4,000 in combined repairs or renovations. You may be reimbursed anywhere from $800 up to a maximum of $2,500.
Starting on Jan. 2, 2018, you can come to City Hall (9001 W. 62nd St.), fill out an application, and submit at least $4,000 in estimated work bids. Grant money will be available until it's all allocated.
You’ll be reimbursed after City staff sees at least $4,000 in receipts and performs a post-project inspection to verify projects are completed and code compliant.
