Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Grant Program

This is picture of a kitchen from an apartment that received funding through CBJ's Accessory Apartment Incentive Grant Program.

In March 2018, the Assembly accepted the recommendation of the Affordable Housing Commission to appropriate $480,000 to the Accessory Apartment Incentive Grant Program, in $6,000 grants. This incentive grant program was developed as a way to leverage the financial capacity of Juneau homeowners, to produce more accessory apartment rental units, at a cost that would be a fraction of the public investment needed to develop traditional affordable housing. The Housing Action Plan, adopted by the Assembly in 2016, clearly indicates a need to create new housing opportunities for workforce, seniors, and young families in Juneau.

On August 21, 2023, the Accessory Dwelling Unit Grant program (ADUG), was created and offers an incentive of up to $13,500 for 16 homeowners annually seeking to develop an accessory dwelling unit (ADU). Accessory dwelling units are currently providing Juneau residents a unique, affordable housing option, while simultaneously benefiting the homeowners in extra income.

Applications for this program are accepted on a year-round, rolling basis until all grants have been awarded.
