Property Improvement Program (PIP)

The Property Improvement Program (PIP) is a reimbursement grant that helps property owners fund attractive and highly visible enhancements to their properties. To be eligible for a PIP grant, a building must be located within one of the Village’s TIF Districts. The grant reimburses up to 50% of the total projects construction cost, not to exceed $20,000. PIP is intended to help fund projects that wouldn’t otherwise be possible without this funding. Contact the Village Planner for more information or to setup your pre-application meeting.
