City awards first Owner-Occupied Home Rehab grant

Decatur, IL – The Economic & Community Development team has awarded the first Owner-Occupied Home Rehab grant to Decatur resident Carl Leming. Mr. Leming was anxiously awaiting the call about his application:
“This will definitely improve the neighborhood,” he said. “It will allow me to stay a lot longer in my home, too.”
The City will work with local contractors to help rehabilitate Mr. Leming’s home, including work on the roof, plumbing, porch, doors, windows, and more. This program is funded by American Rescue Plan (ARP) monies. Pictured is Mr. Leming (3rd from the right) and the Owner-Occupied Home Rehab program team.
