The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is currently accepting applications for the 2023/2024 Public Infrastructure and Housing Rehabilitation Grant. These grant opportunities are funded by the Community Development Block Grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The Public Infrastructure Grant aims to help finance water and sanitary systems and storm sewer construction projects that strive to improve public health, safety, and public welfare and help communities with substantial low-to-moderate income populations.
Meanwhile, the purpose of the Housing Rehabilitation Grant is to provide units of general local government with funds to help address housing needs of eligible low-to-moderate income (LMI) households. The program targets projects that preserve single family, owner-occupied housing in need of rehabilitation and encourages neighborhood revitalization.
Both applications are due January 18, 2024.
