Animal Shelter Grant Program

The Cook County Department of Animal and Rabies Control (ARC) conducts Housing Cook County’s Animals grant program annually.

Housing Cook County’s Animals is an $8 million program that covers the costs of planning and construction of animal shelter facilities in Cook County. The goal of the program is to expand the capacity of existing non-profit and governmental animal shelters to address current overcrowding, while providing housing for animals impounded by the CCARC. 

Interested parties should review the program overview and submit an application. Please contact Brian Miller at 312-603-2820 or brian.miller@cookcountyil.gov for more information.
