The new Hergert Home
|This program was designed to promote and encourage families to move to Hodgeman County and build a home, therefore establishing permanent residence here. We believe that our quality of life in Hodgeman County is something to be desired and we would like to share that with people.
We designed this program in which a couple or family would purchase land in Hodgeman county, build a house to our specifications, and then if approved, the applicants would receive $10,000 of grant money to build in Jetmore, and $5,000 throughout rural Hodgeman County and in the City of Hanston.
To see how to apply and to review our specifications, please continue through this site and if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to call; Hodgeman County Economic Development @ 620-357-8831.
Pictured below is the new home of Oliver and Christy Salmans'
which was recently built in Hanston, KS. It was one of the first homes in the Hodgeman County Land Rush Program.
