koehler 042823BLOOMINGTON – State Senator Dave Koehler was pleased to see the Home Repair and Accessibility Program will provide $350,000 to the city of Bloomington to help low-income homes with much needed repairs.

“Every Illinoisan should have a stable roof over their head,” said Koehler (D – Peoria). “This funding will provide financial assistance for residents in Bloomington who can’t afford the necessary repairs for their home.” 

The grant program will help provide low-income homeowners with health, safety, accessibility, and energy efficiency repairs to their homes. The funding is designed to serve underfunded communities and ensure residents are able to stay in their homes.

“This funding would provide accessibility improvements for elderly and disabled homeowners,” said Koehler. “Giving Illinoisans the opportunity to install necessary upgrades like ramps and stair lifts will improve resident’s well-being, and give them a sense of ease in their own homes.”
