Blight Removal

The goal of the Renville County Housing and Redevelopment Authority and Economic Development Authority (HRA/EDA) Blight Removal Program is to partner with public and private property owners to remove blighted structures and encourage reinvestment in the property.  The objective of the program is for the HRA/EDA to provide financial help to remove and remediate blighted property in Renville County. 

Grants of up to $5,000 (residential) or $10,000 (commercial) are available to assist with the proper cleanup of blighted structures that pose a risk to health and safety.  Grants require a 1:1 cash match and are reimbursed upon submission of paid receipts for costs incurred.

The application window for 2022 is closed.  Applications for the next round of blight removal grants will be due on March 1, 2023.  Applications can be submitted any time via email to admin@radc.org or mailed to the Renville County HRA at 200 S. Mill Street, PO Box 481 Redwood Falls MN 56283 or placed in the drop box located in the main entrance of the Government Services Center in Olivia (entrance with the flags).
