$5 million authorized for development of housing

The McKenzie County Job Development Authority has been granted $5 million dollars from the McKenzie County commission to put towards projects that increase the number of single family homes constructed in McKenzie County. The most recently-released project is the Shovel-ready lot program which has a Request for Proposals out until February 21, 2020 at 10am CT. The other housing program of the Job Development Authority is the Housing Development Subsidy which has been in place since June 2019. There have been a few updates to that program that include:
  • Allow for off-site, stick-built homes that are built to IRC codes and meet the JDA building requirements
  • Increase max city lot size from 10,000 square feet to one acre
  • Mandated completion of foundation increased from 30 days to 60 days
  • Clarifies that ingress/egress to basement must be finished to nearest facing bedroom/bathroom wall with all other unfinished space accessible through interior door for any houses that are using bedroom(s)/bathroom(s) in the basement to meet the 3 bedroom/2 bathroom minimum requirements. 

For full information on either of the program visit the following webpages: Shovel-ready lot program and Housing Development Subsidy .
