homeimprovementimgROCK ISLAND – Residents in the area now have an opportunity to receive financial assistance for necessary home improvement projects.

“This assistance is much-needed throughout the community,” said Halpin (D-Rock Island). “There are homeowners in dire need of maintenance to make their homes safe and accessible so they can stay in their communities.”

The Home Repair and Accessibility Program is designed to support health, safety, accessibility and energy efficient repairs to qualifying households. HRAP will provide $15.3 million in funds across the state to cover these necessary repairs through five-year, forgivable loans. The funding is designed to serve underfunded communities and ensure residents are able to stay in their homes.

Areas and organizations in the 36th District that will receive funding include:

  • City of Galesburg - $400,000
  • City of Macomb - $500,000
  • City of Moline - $300,000
  • City of Rock Island - $300,000
  • Project NOW, Inc - $300,000
  • Rock Island Economic Growth Corporation - $650,000

“This is a great investment in our communities, giving them the resources and support they need,” said Halpin. “I encourage all eligible homeowners to apply.”
