Local City Government Incentives
In support of the local Home Base Iowa initiative, and military veterans in general, the Grimes City Council adopted valuable incentives aimed toward the recruitment and retention of veterans of the Unites States military. A summary of these municipal incentives are as follows:
Veterans will receive a one-time voucher valued at $250 that may be used to offset the cost of Building Permits, Park and Rec Programs, and Pet Licenses. This voucher is nontransferable and will not be reissued if lost or damaged.
To take advantage of these benefits, veterans must register with the City of Grimes. Veterans must be active duty, reserve, or honorably discharged. Proof of veteran status is required. Acceptable forms of proof include: DD214 form, Iowa driver's license with veteran designation, or military ID card.
If a veteran is deceased, the veterans immediate family may still receive these benefits.
If you are an existing beneficiary of the previous property tax rebate program in Grimes, and are listed as the owner prior to January 9, 2019, your property tax rebates of up to $1000 per year for 5 years have been grandfathered in.
