One project the Commission oversees is the Good Neighbor Fund. The Romeoville Good Neighbor Fund is a program to assist disadvantaged residents in maintaining the exterior of their home. On each month's water bill, residents are encouraged to donate to the Good Neighbor Fund. The program has been in existence since 1985. When you donate money to the Good Neighbor Fund, it is deposited into a Village account and only assists residents.
Any amount can be donated. We do not use Village Funds for this project. Residents are only assisted through donations. The Beautification Commission believes that by helping residents, we can begin to beautify our neighborhoods and make our pride in the community evident to all. Please make a donation to the Good Neighbor Fund!
How to Apply
The projects are prioritized with code violations or safety problems addressed first. Projects must be for the exterior of the home (paint, brushes, windows, etc.) Residents are only eligible to apply for assistance one time. The Beautification Commission makes the final decision on who is eligible to receive assistance.
Because the entire application process is confidential, the exact beneficiaries of the program are not known by the Commission members. A $400 assistance limit is in place. Please remember you must meet our qualifications in order to receive assistance. Residents needing assistance please apply by calling Lisa at 815-886-5022.
