FORNEY, TX - In an effort to revitalize and expand infill development within the City of Forney, the Forney Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) is offering property owners of vacant, underutilized and/or condemned residential properties the opportunity to demolish their property for intended commercial use. Areas applicable for this grant include thoroughfares where the use over time has changed from residential to commercial, Broad St. and Pinson are two examples. Applicants can receive up to 50% for the total cost of demolition, not to exceed $5,000. Each application is considered on a case-by-case basis.

“Through the support of the Forney EDC Board and Forney City Council, this Demolition Grant Program will provide another tool for the continued commercial growth of our dynamic community”, said Forney EDC Executive Director, Warren Ketteman. 

Interested parties are encouraged to contact the FEDC staff to obtain more information and receive an application.  The FEDC can be reached at (972) 564-5808, or info@forneytexasedc.org
