Governor Quinn has asked President Obama to declare 11 Illinois counties, including Cook County, as major disaster areas following the storms and heavy rainfall that moved through the state on April 17-18. If the Governor's request is approved by the President, residents in those counties may be eligible to apply for grants and low-interest federal loans to help recover from the flooding. Affected businesses may also be eligible to apply for low-interest SBA loans.
Additional information regarding this process will be provided to residents as it is received.
If you sustained damage and would like more information regarding the Initial Damage Assessment process, please contact La Grange Fire Chief Bill Bryzgalski at (708) 579-2338.
