Homeowners can apply to those groups for forgivable loans of up to $40,000. Homeowners must repay the money if they sell the home before the loan expires.

It's estimated the loans will help 148 homeowners keep up with needed repairs. The work will generate an estimated 45 jobs, $4 million in income and wages for local businesses, and $338,600 in local taxes.

More information is available on the Illinois Housing Development Authority website.
