Resident Assistance Program - Protect Your Basement

The Village has funds available for a program designed to help subsidize the installation of eligible flood control improvements such as overhead sewers or backflow prevention valves. With these improvements, buildings can be protected against the occasional backup from the Village's combined sewer system. While all properties may be eligible to participate in the program, there are varying levels of funding available:

  • Standard Subsidy: covers 50% of the eligible costs, up to a maximum reimbursement of $4,000.
  • High-Risk Location: covers 80% of the eligible costs, up to a maximum reimbursement of $6,000.
  • High-Risk, Limited Access: covers 80% of the eligible costs, up to a maximum reimbursement of $7,500.
