The City of Carrollton’s Single Family Demolition/Rebuild Incentive is part of the Neighborhood IMPACT initiative. The program objective is to promote the removal and replacement of aging single-family housing stock in Neighborhood Empowerment Zones. This program provides incentives to any homeowner or homebuilder who demolishes an existing single-family home in an Empowerment Zone and rebuilds a new home on the same lot within 24 months.

Application Process

  •  An application for incentive must be submitted in approved format to the Environmental Services Department by the land owner. If the property has multiple owners, all owners must sign the application. Staff will verify ownership information.
  • The owner(s) shall at the time the application is submitted include three estimates detailing the demolition costs as well as a project timeline.
  • The application shall describe the owner’s plans for the property after the demolition takes place.
  • Project review of each application is required by city staff including appropriate comments and recommendations for changes prior to submission to the City Council Re- Development Sub-Committee.
  • All applications will be reviewed by the Re-Development Sub-Committee. Any modifications to the application will be made prior to forwarding the application to the full City Council with a recommendation for approval or denial.
  • City Council will review the recommendation of the Re-Development Sub-Committee and vote to either approve or deny the grant application.
  • The grant incentive will consist of cash payment payable upon successful completion of the project as outlined in an incentive agreement to be entered into between the City and the owner of the property.  

* Applications are determined on a case-by-case approach. Exceptions to this policy may be approved by the Re-Development Sub-Committee.
