Accessory Dwelling Unit Assistance Program

The Summit County Housing Department has implemented a new program called the Accessory Dwelling Unit Assistance Program to assist in the creation of accessory dwelling units (ADU’s) in Summit County (attached and detached). Depending on the situation, Summit County will reimburse up to $60,000 of the cost of constructing new ADU’s. In areas with participating Water and Sewer districts these funds can be used to pay water and sewer tap fees up front. There is also funding available to create new ADU’s in existing homes and to convert non-compliant ADU’s into compliant ADU’s.
