City of Holland Michigan Official Website

The City of Holland Community and Neighborhood Services Department has increased the amount of money available for residents to make improvements to their homes from $2,500 to $4,000. The increase was recommended by the Neighborhood Improvement Committee to encourage investment in projects like new garages, additions, new porches, complete facelifts, and major remodels to homes in the Downtown Neighborhoods.

The grants, known as Enhancement Grants are available to all owner occupied home owners in the Downtown Neighborhoods and are given as a rebate of 50% of the cost of the project upon completion.  Home owners must have their application approved prior to starting work.

The Housing and Neighborhoods Division of the Department also provides several other neighborhood improvement grants including Home Repair and Down Payment Assistance Grants for low to moderate home owners and buyers in the City of Holland.

Residents interested in the program should contact Danielle Weeks at 355-1330 or

Applications and more information are available on the City’s website (see below link).
