From the Advantage.
The city of Alton has resumed Home Rehabilitation Program activity, which had been on hiatus because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The program provides up to $10,000 as a forgivable grant for home repairs to address structural deficiencies, handicap accessibility, and life safety issues.
Justine Petersen Housing Corp. is the third-party program administrator and handles all application intake, reviews and processing on behalf of the city. Applicants must apply directly to Justine Petersen or contact the Department of Planning & Development for additional program inquiries. In an effort to address the program backlog, the city of Alton is not accepting new applications at this time. Further announcements will be forthcoming when new applications are being accepted.
