Each year the grant is funded with $100,000 to help homeowners reduce the cost of expensive sidewalk repairs.

Construction season is getting started and can be a great time to repair damaged or displaced sidewalks. Property owners in the Urban Road Maintenance District can apply for reimbursement this summer on approved repairs.

Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of sidewalks adjacent to their property. The Sidewalk Repair Grant Program was created last year to help lessen the financial barriers to repair.

The Sidewalk Repair Grant Program will reimburse property owners within the URMD up to $2,000 for the repair or replacement of damaged sidewalks by a licensed contractor. Eligibility details and application instructions are available online.

The URMD funds the program, which can award up to $100,000 per fiscal year. The URMD is a service district that supports road maintenance and biking and pedestrian projects.
