In late 2019, the EDA launched an effort to encourage the creation of Accessory Dwelling Units in Richfield. The ADU Pilot Project falls within the program guidelines of the Transformation Home Loan, but offers a larger incentive to projects that include an ADU.  Funding up to $35,000 is available for zero percent interest, no payment loan. 
More information on the ADU Pilot Project can be found here.
