Resident Assistance Programs & Grants
If you are having trouble paying your LEXServ bill, or need financial support for sidewalk repair or tree removal, you can find financial support through LFUCG.
When you have a dead or dying street tree, this can help defray the cost of removal and replacement. (Please note: funds run out quickly!)
These grants provide funding for projects such as rain gardens, rain barrels, aeration systems for retention ponds, stream bank restoration, neighborhood workshops and other projects that help improve or manage stormwater through education and/or physical improvements.
To receive assistance on your property tax bill you can file for a homestead exemption. The homestead exemption is available to homeowners who fall in two categories: those who will be 65 years of age or over any time during the current calendar year, or those who are disabled. Applicants must own, live in and maintain the home as their primary residence.
