Grant Programs

Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago (NHS) receives funds from the City of Chicago, Cook County, and others to provide grants to eligible homeowners to improve the health, safety, affordability, and functionality of their homes. Grants are available for low-to-moderate income households in targeted areas of Chicago for specific categories of repairs or other needs (e.g. exterior rehab or flood prevention). Each year a limited number of grants are available for each program.
