Since January 1st, 2015, the Palo Alto County Gaming Development Corporation
(PACGDC) has awarded approximately $57,000 in demolition grant funding to cities in Palo Alto County, with several more demolition projects pending completion. PACGDC also reports one completed project and another pending Housing Initiative grant application in the county worth a total of $30,000.
All of the communities in Palo Alto County established Housing Initiative and Demolition Grant Programs in 2014. To lessen the burden of government, these grant programs are currently funded by the Palo Alto County Gaming and Development Corporation. Anyone interested in demolishing a deteriorated house and/or constructing a new home should contact their city clerk for additional details on these grant programs.
