JOLIET – State Senator Rachel Ventura was pleased to see the Home Repair and Accessibility Program will provide $500,000 to the Will County Habitat for Humanity to help low-income homes with much-needed repairs.

“Having a stable shelter is a basic human right,” said Ventura (D – Joliet). “This funding will provide financial assistance for residents across Will County who need necessary repairs for their home.”

The grant program will help provide low-income homeowners with health, safety, accessibility, and energy efficiency repairs to their homes. The funding is designed to serve underfunded communities and ensure residents are able to stay in their homes.

Will County Habitat for Humanity has been running since 1988. The group has placed over 75 families in homes and built multiple rehab homes in the area, providing life-changing services to those in need.

“I encourage people who can’t afford structural repairs to their home to apply for this grant,” said Ventura. “This grant will provide relief to those who need safer and more secure homes or those who need accessibility improvements.”
