Wicomico Employment Incentive Grant Program for Economic Growth

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt and the Department of Planning, Zoning and Community Development report that so far, 30 applications have been received for the Employment Incentive Grant program.

This grant program was developed to spur single-family housing construction in Wicomico County. Only 74 grants will be awarded during fiscal year 2015.

Jason Malone, of Malone Homes commented, “This program keeps me from raising prices due to increases in material costs.”

The amount of each award is $5321 and requires the developer to meet certain conditions including initiating construction of the home within 3 months of receiving the permit.

“This is our latest ‘jobs' initiative, designed to spur construction of residential housing. I am happy that we were able to secure funding in this year's budget for our incentive grant program,” County Executive Pollitt said.

Applications can be downloaded by visiting www.wicomicocounty.org and clicking on the Business tab or picked up at the Department of Planning, Zoning and Community Development office located on the second floor of the Government Office Building in Salisbury.
