Household Maintenance Assistance

The following programs assist seniors with household maintenance, including exterior items such as sidewalks and weatherization.

Illinois Home Weatherization Program

The Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program (IHWAP) is designed to help low-income residents save fuel and money while increasing the comfort of their homes. Its mission is to insulate the dwellings of low-income persons, particularly the elderly, persons with disabilities, families with children, high residential energy users and households with a high energy burden, in order to conserve needed energy and to aid those persons least able to afford higher utility costs. Applications are taken at the township offices.

Single-Family Home Repair Grant Program

The City of Naperville has contracted with Rebuilding Together Aurora to provide no-cost, home safety and accessibility modifications for low-income homeowners. The Single-Family Home Repair Grant Program is open to households located within the municipal boundaries of the City of Naperville. The property must be owner-occupied and be the primary residence of an elderly person, a person with disabilities, a veteran or children under 18 living in unhealthy or unsafe conditions. Income must fall within or below 80% of HUD low-income standards and the homeowner must not be able to do necessary repairs/modifications due to cost or physical constraints. Applicants can complete the Rebuilding Together Aurora application and submit it directly to Rebuilding Together Aurora.
