The city's Cultural Arts Commission administers three grant programs to encourage and promote the arts in Elgin.
Historic Architectural Rehabilitation Grants
The Historic Architectural Rehabilitation Grant Program provides residential property owners of structures in designated historic districts with reimbursement grants of up to $20,000 for the restoration of exterior architectural features.
