*January 2024 Update*
Crosswalk has submitted the application on behalf of the City of Mt. Vernon. Funding will not be announced until later this year. Applications for improvements will not be accepted until funding is approved and all grant conditions have been met.
On behalf of the City of Mt. Vernon, Crosswalk Community Action Agency is requesting homeowners complete the Community Development Block Grant Income Survey for use in applying for Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity’s Community Development Assistance Program 2024 grant funding. These surveys are part of the City’s application for grant funding and do not guarantee assistance.
If grant funding is awarded to the City, Crosswalk will be taking applications from homeowners in the Summer/Fall of 2024. Applicants will be able to apply for assistance in repairing roofs, plumbing, electrical, foundations and other home repairs.
To be considered for grant funding, we need a minimum of 33 qualifying households to complete this survey. The more surveys completed, the better the chance of receiving grant funding. Please complete the quick survey and return to the water billing department at City Hall, 1100 Main Street, Mt. Vernon, IL.
