The City of Elgin administers several attractive grant programs to encourage homeowners in the restoration of their historic homes. These include the Multi-Family Housing Conversion Program, which provides financial incentives for homeowners to convert their house from a multi-family home back to a single-family home, also the Restoration Grant Program, which is a $20,000 matching grant for certain historical restoration projects. The GPA also encourages restoration of historic homes through our Great Unveiling program, which rewards homeowners in Elgin each year for removing vinyl, asphalt, or aluminum siding.
While information about grants available for particular houses is accurate to the best of our knowledge, potential purchasers are advised to verify grant qualifications themselves with the Elgin Department of Code Administration.
