About the Veteran Home Repair Program

Applications are open! 

In partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, Cook County has allocated $1.25 million to complete free indoor and outdoor repairs to at least 15 veteran-owned homes each year for the next two years.

The veteran home repair program focuses on warm, safe and dry priorities or the need for home modification improvements. Low-income veteran homeowners will be prioritized.


This free program is available to Cook County veteran homeowners, dependent spouses or caretakers who provide housing for a veteran. 


If you need assistance filling out the online application or if you have any questions, please contact Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago by calling (312) 818-1196 or email
