Eleven Spring Valley homes were revitalized after the city received a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant Housing Rehabilitation Program grant in 2020.
The grant was used only for low-, or moderate-income households, said Shug Grosenbach, of the North Central Illinois Council of Governments.
No one was displaced during the rehabilitations, she told the Spring Valley City Council during a public meeting Monday closing out the grant prior to the city’s regular meeting.
Of the $500,000 received, $427,350 was spent on home improvements, the remainder was used for inspections and other services relating to the rehabilitation.
“It went really well,” Grosenbach told the council.
