The City of Chicago's Porch and Roof Program (formerly EHAP)

09/08/2017
Small apartment buildings with roofs and porches in bad shape can apply for a city grant to cover the cost of repairs.

Registration for the lottery that will determine who gets a grant — ranging from $5,000 to $30,000 — will take place from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday, officials said.

Residents can apply online at http://bit.ly/2faDILi or by calling 311.

The lottery will be Oct. 19, and is limited to the repair or replacement of roofs or porches attached to one- to four-unit apartment buildings owned by individuals and families earning no more than 80 percent of the area median income in Chicago, officials said.

For more information, call 312-744-3653.
