jersey county courthouseGLEN CARBON – Jersey County is getting assistance from the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) to fix up vacant properties under a state grant plan State Senator Rachelle Crowe (D-Glen Carbon) announced today.

“It’s imperative to get these small towns the funds to keep up the appearance of their streets,” Crowe said. “I think it will have a domino effect, providing work for those who need it and ultimately attracting people to our communities.”

The Abandoned Residential Property Municipality Relief Program (APP) will provide Jersey County with a $20,000 grant to be used for maintaining weeds and grass, trimming trees and bushes, installing fences to protect the public and repairing or demolishing abandoned property.

Jersey County is one recipient of 62 community stabilization grants awarded by the IHDA, totaling $8.1 million.
