The goal of the program is to provide financial assistance to encourage the removal of existing chain link fences in front and side yards within the Elgin Historic District. Grants of up to a maximum of $1,000 per property are available to pay for the costs associated with the removal and disposal of chain link fences as well as the purchase and installation of replacement fences. Funds are provided upon removal of the chain link fence.
Applications are accepted year round. Once approved, you have one year to complete the work. Electronically submit completed applications to [email protected] or by mail to 155 S Gifford St, Elgin, IL 60120.
Joining the Gifford Park Association is free and open to anyone who appreciates historic preservation!
