Home Repair Program

Roof and Porch Services

Note: Due to the large backlog of applications that accumulated during the COVID-19 pandemic, the lottery for the roof and porch grant program will not place this year. The next one-day registration period for Chicago homeowners to enter the lottery for a chance to receive the one-time service will take place on Thursday, May 18, 2023. 

Formerly known as the Roof and Porch Repair Program, the Home Repair Program (HRP) provides grants to income-eligible homeowners for improvements to their roof or porch. The program is open to residents who own and occupy a 1-to-4-unit residential property. To qualify, households must meet HUD income guidelines. The amount of financial assistance is based on household need and available funding. A site inspection will determine the scope of work required and the repair cost.
