If you live in Jolly Homes, Bremen Heights, Belly Button Hill neighborhood, or along Midlothian Creek – this message is for you!
The Village and Robinson Engineering are working together to secure 2 grants which will be used to address Midlothian’s chronic flooding and stormwater management problems in these neighborhoods.
For both grants, the Village needs to show proof of structure flooding, identify and quantify the problems, and develop the solutions to mitigate future flooding. Resident participation is crucial to this effort! Please share your photos, newspaper clippings, and letters of support.
Grant #1: Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) “Stormwater Management Phase II (Localized) Flood Control Program. www.mwrd.org

Grant #2: Cook County “Community Development Block Grant” Disaster Recovery & Resilience Design/Engineering Grant Program. Application deadline 3/9/2018
This grant is specifically related to the April-May 2013 flood disaster. The goal of the program is to help municipalities fund engineering studies in order to develop flood mitigation projects to be shovel-ready.
