Home improvement grants available for Machesney Park residents

Machesney Park – In Machesney Park, a number of low-income elderly residents are living in substandard housing built half a century ago. However, the village has a program that could help. Interested parties have until this Friday to apply for money to fix up their houses. WNIJ's Christopher Hosken reports.
