Rockford residents will be able to take advantage of a new roof replacement program if they meet the requirements.

Before you raise the roof in excitement, applications for the new program, through Rockford's Community and Economic Development Department, are available only on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The City of Rockford's Community and Economic Development Department is offering a new roof replacement program. Eligible homes must be single-family, owner-occupied, and located within the City of Rockford. This program is available to income-eligible homeowners who meet program requirements.

Residents will have three weeks to apply, March 9 through April 3, online and at City Hall.
