This program is designed to assist eligible residents with emergency and health and safety related rehabilitation projects on their homes. Eligible projects include sewer replacement, roof, window, water heater and furnace replacements and electrical upgrades. Eligibility is based on annual HUD income guidelines and property value limits for homes located within the corporate limits of the City of DeKalb.
The City of DeKalb also participates in volunteer assistance projects for residents. Projects include spring and fall yard clean-up and landscaping, painting, weatherization projects and clinics. Projects are coordinated as volunteers and projects are available. For more information regarding volunteering or organizing a project, please contact Neighborhood Program Specialist Joanne Rouse at 815-748-2366.
