Residential Redevelopment

For over 35 years, IRRRB's Residential Redevelopment program has removed blight within the agency's service area to pave the way for a cleaner, healthier environment, more attractive communities and new construction! Formerly known as "Building Demo," a total of more than 6,800 structures, primarily single-family homes and garages, have been demolished through the program.

The Residential Redevelopment Grant Program assists cities, townships and counties in demolishing dilapidated residential structures including single-unit residential homes, residential duplex homes of no more than two units, garages and accessory structures located within the IRRRB service area.
