Chicago's Shared Cost Sidewalk Program Begins Accepting Applicants on January 9, 2018.
The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program is a voluntary program in which property owners share 50% of the cost of sidewalk repair with the City. Thousands of Chicagoans have been taking advantage of the exceptional value and ease of participation.
The Shared Cost Sidewalk Program cost per square foot charged to property owners is well below what a private contractor would charge. Senior citizens and persons with disabilities may qualify for additional discounted rates.
Applications are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. The number of participants is based on availability of funds. The program typically reaches capacity quickly, so apply early. Please note that if you applied for the program in previous years, you must apply again in 2018 if you wish to be considered for the 2018 program. Applications will only be accepted through the City's 311 system or through the City's service request website www.cityofchicago.org/311. The property owner's contact information and the property address are required at the time of request. Click on the picture to apply to this city program
