Illinois Housing Development Authority announces $8.1 million in grants

Posted: Updated:

(WSIL) -- The Illinois Housing Development Authority is awarding more than $8 million in grants to municipalities and counties across Illinois to help manage abandoned properties. 

The grants are through the Abandoned Residential Property Municipality Relief Program.

Under the program, communities can use the money to maintain weeds and grass, trim trees and bushes, install protective fences, repair or demolish abandoned property. 

“It is imperative we give communities the tools they need to eliminate blight which can provide significant economic, social and safety benefits to the surrounding neighborhood,” said IHDA Executive Director Audra Hamernik. 

In southern Illinois, Anna, Bluford, Carrier Mills, Centralia, Sesser and Vienna are slated to receive funding. 

The 62 recipients are:
