The City of Merriam is again investing $50,000 in grants to help fund homeowners’ repairs and renovations for exterior home improvements. In 2020, residents only need to invest in $2,500 to receive a 20% reimbursement from the City. Eligible improvements include new paint, siding, a fence, deck, roof, driveway, and more projects.
The Community Development Department will start accepting applications in person at City Hall on Jan. 2 starting at 8 a.m. Grant money – up to $2,500 per property - will be available until all funds are allocated.

This year, the City funded grants to 28 Merriam property owners who invested a combined $335,000 in projects.
