Grant Programs

Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS) receives funds from the City of Chicago, Cook County, and others to provide grants to eligible homeowners to improve the health, safety, affordability, and functionality of their homes. Grants are available for low-to-moderate income households in targeted areas of Chicago for specific categories of repairs or other needs (e.g. exterior rehab or flood prevention). Each year a limited number of grants are available for each program.

Targeted Home Improvement Grant

At NHS the health and well-being of our clients, partners, and staff is our highest priority. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, we are suspending the processing of new and incomplete Targeted Home Improvement Grant applications starting Thursday, March 19th until Friday, April 3rd. COMPLETE applications (those missing no submittals) received on or before March 18th at 5 PM will continue to be processed by NHS staff over the next two weeks. New and/or incomplete applications will be processed starting early April. Check back here starting April 6th for further details. We feel this is the safest and most equitable way to continue implementing the Targeted Home Improvement Grant program for Chicago homeowners. You can still check your eligibility for the program and download an application by clicking HERE. Please email with any questions regarding the application process.
