Emergency Grant Program (City of Urbana)
The Emergency Grant Program is available to very low-income homeowners for repair of health or safety items. Emergency grant funds are available only if the repair is immediately needed to mitigate a hazardous condition which poses a threat to the health and safety of the occupant. This may include repair or replacement of defective mechanical, electrical or plumbing systems, building components, and surfaces.
- You must own and have lived in the home to be repaired for a minimum of one year; Trust Deed and Contract Purchases are allowed.
- Your home must be within Urbana city limits.
- You must have property insurance.
- Your household income may not exceed 50 percent of the area median family income.
Maximum funding through the Emergency Grant Program is $5,000 per household.
The Urbana Grants Management Division will accept applications throughout the year subject to funding availability. Call (217) 384-2447 for more information.
