Cash Back Grants for Straw Bale Homes in Missouri!

Written by Andrew Morrison

person being handed moneyI recently received a comment from a gentleman in Missouri who told me “…recently our area of Missouri approved a grant for the construction of straw bale homes offering a $15,000 construction reimbursement for the building of straw bale homes…” Wow! That is a great deal and something I would like to learn more about.

If you have any other details about cash back grants for straw bale homes, I would love to hear about it. I would like to know who started the grant program, how it is funded, how owners cash in, what limitations are on the grant, and anything else you can tell me. I would love to use this as a pilot program for other towns, cities, counties and perhaps on the national level!

Incentives work well for many people and perhaps a few areas offering incentives will help grow this powerful technology! If anyone out there has information about similar programs in other parts of the World, please let us know. When we gather this information together, we can start to look for similarities and ways to expand these programs. I am excited!

  1. Andrew Morrison,

    Have you built your own straw bale home? Have you held any classes yet? Are there any homes available for tour for those that wish to build straw bale? Ours will be, after we build it of course.

  2. Hi Rebecca. I am not in Missouri, rather I was sharing this information for those who may need it. I have built many straw bale homes and taught classes all over the US (including Missouri). I will be teaching classes again next year all over the US. Stay tuned to for the announcement and sale pricing on Black Friday.

  3. Hi Jonathan. I wrote about this grant program many years ago and I am not sure what the current status of it is. I encourage you to investigate with the state as they will have much more current and accurate data than I can provide at this point.
