State grant could give Loves Park homeowners money for home repairs

News

LOVES PARK, Ill. (WTVO) — Loves Park homeowners could receive money toward critical home repairs, thanks to a new grant from the Illinois Housing Development Authority.

Homeowners with roofing, flooring, electrical, plumbing, or other health and safety issues may have an opportunity to get them fixed, as the City of Loves Park has received more than $200,000 to help low-income homeowners get their homes up to code.

The grant is for eligible households bringing in a combined yearly income of $42,000 or less.

Homeowners can apply to receive money to repair a roof if the home is already up to code.

“Homes that have property maintence issues, and we understand that alot of those homeowners, they don’t have the means to bring them up to code or make the repairs necessary to make it a safe living environment, so this grant really offers them this opportunity.” said Loves Park’s Economic Development and Planning Manager, Nathan Bruck.

The application deadline in June 4th. For questions, contact Bruck directly at 815-654-5033 or email nathanbruck@loves-park.il.us.
