grant available for Lockport homes for saleThere is a program for buyers of Crest Hill, Joliet and Lockport homes for sale. Home buyers in those towns could qualify for up to $10,000 towards the down payment and/or closing costs. It is The Illinois Building Blocks Program and is being offered by the Illinois Housing Development Authority.

This program is geared for families that might not otherwise be able to purchase a home because of lack of enough cash to cover closing costs and down payments required to qualify for a mortgage loan. It was created to get rid of the current inventory of vacant homes in these 3 towns, which will help revitalize each town. When a town has a glut of vacant foreclosed properties they become vandalized and continue bringing value down for other properties.

Today my son Chad & I & the grandkids were going to get together and attempt to exercise by walking the trail along the I&M Canal in Lockport. It was an attempt only. Last time we did it was hot and humid and looked like it was going to rain.

OK, there were elderly ladies walking up the street wearing only sweaters but Chad & I were cold. I was afraid the little grandchildren would be
