Abandoned Property Grants Available for Illinois Municipalities and Counties

Attention Illinois municipalities and counties. The Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) is accepting applications for the Abandoned Properties Program (APP) that provides grants to municipalities and counties for the maintenance or demolition of abandoned residential properties within their jurisdiction.
Grant funds may be used for securing, maintaining, demolishing, or rehabilitating abandoned homes. A list of specific activities allowed as part of securing and maintaining properties may be found at Abandoned Residential Property Municipality Relief Program Rules.
The maximum grant award will be $75,000. Applications will be ranked according to criteria set forth in the application. The grant funds will be distributed throughout the state geographically as determined by statute. The highest ranking applications in each geographic set-aside will be awarded until funds are exhausted.
Applications are available here.

More information on the overall program, process and eligibility can be found by visiting the APP FAQ or by participating in one of the workshops IHDA is hosting, including the following:
