Senior Basement Protection Program

The Village has a grant program for senior citizens who are unable to afford the cost of a basement protection system for their residential sewer lines. The Senior Basement Protection Grant will work with the existing "Protect Your Basement" Program. Senior citizens who qualify will be eligible to have the remaining cost paid for by this grant. 

In order to qualify, senior citizens must meet the following criteria:

  • Qualify under the current regulations for the Village’s "Protect Your Basement" Program
  • Be age 65 or older
  • Have a total household income of $55,000 or less for the previous tax year and provide proof of income or other significant financial hardship
  • Be the owner of the property
  • Use the property as principal place of residence
