Home Improvement Program

Program Goals

If you are a Skokie homeowner you may be eligible to receive financial assistance for eligible home repairs. The goal of this program is to assist moderate-and low-income households in maintaining the quality of their homes and reducing energy consumption. A well weatherized home means increased year-round comfort and smaller utility bills.


Program Details

Qualified low-income households may receive grants from the Village of up to $12,000 for eligible housing improvements. Eligible grantees are required to sign a separate payback agreement.  The Village of Skokie will make the grants to homeowners using federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.

  • The Home Improvement Program pre-application can be found at the Building & Inspection Services Division window at Village Hall.
