Roof/Porch Program

Important change to the upcoming 2015 Roof and Repair Program, which provides grants for emergency roof and porch repairs on behalf of income-eligible applicants.
The start date for the 2015 round of roof and porch applications is being moved to Thursday, September 4, 2014. On that day, residents will be able to initiate the application process by calling 311 starting at 9:00a.m.
Calls will no longer be accepted on the first business day of the New Year, as in the previous year. All other guidelines for the program will remain the same and applications will continue to be processed on a first-come, first served basis.

Any good news in West Garfield Park?

I bought a property here ten years ago and have not seen much improvement. I live in the building. I hope that the Lot Program, or whatever it is called, which allowed EGP residents a shot at buying vacant lots for a buck moves into WGP. There are at least 6 vacant lots on my block. Gardens!

  • There is something called the "Large Lot" program which offers vacant lots for sale for 1 dollar with a maximum purchase of 2. You have to live at and own a property on the block where this is being offered. EGP started taking applications for lot purchases on July 1st. If that is where you reside, I wouldn't waste any time!

  • Taj's page are envirnoment dose not define who we are.

    Thank you so much.
    I'm on it now!
