CRA Reactivates Residential Incentive Program

CRA Residential Incentive Program Reactivated

Beginning October 1, 2019 Residential Incentive Program is reactivated by the Lynn Haven Community Redevelopment Agency. 

Implemented in 2015, the residential incentive program was designed to promote the development of unimproved lots within the CRA area. The Lynn Haven CRA will pay up to $5,000 to the lot owner if he or she builds a new detached single-family home on their residential lot. The amount of the incentive depends on the size of the new home. The residence should have at least 1,500 SF of heated and cooled area. The program is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications can be downloaded here. A paper copy is available at the City’s Service Center, located at 817 Ohio Ave. For further information, please contact Ben Janke, CRA Director, Lynn Haven CRA at (850) 265-2121 or by email to

It includes an area of approx. 695 acres located between Bailey Bridge and 17th Street, and Tennessee Ave. to Illinois Ave. Its goal is to promote a family-friendly, walkable downtown area, while preserving our local, small-town heritage.
