Cook County Offers Residential Resilience Program

The Cook County Department of Planning and Development has developed a Residential Resilience Program. The County’s program, made possible by funding from HUD, provides one-time residential construction grants of up to $25,000 to repair flood damage to homes and minimize the risk future flooding through flood mitigation strategies such as overhead sewers and green infrastructure. Grants through the program are made to individual homeowners through two non-profit program administrators, with the North West Housing Partnership (NWHP) managing the program for the Palatine area. The following are the grantee eligibility requirements:

• Cook County resident, excluding City of Chicago
• Owner occupied, single-family home (1 – 4 units)
• Owned the home prior to April 2013
• Meet household income requirements (Low-Moderate Income for Cook County)
• Can prove home was flooded between April and May 2013 through insurance claims, photographs, etc.

The program’s grant application period expires at the end of April. For more information on the County’s Residential Resilience Program please visit the North West Housing Partnership’s website at www.nwhp.net
