  • Illinois to receive $2.8 million in HUD grants
    Nearly two dozen Illinois communities will receive $2.8 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin announced Tuesday the money will go toward helping families learn skills, gain experience and get jobs in an effort to gain self-sufficiency.

    Grants will go to housing authorities in Bloomington, Chicago, East St. Louis, Elgin, Joliet, Freeport, Peoria, Rock Island, Rockford, Springfield, Waukegan, and the following counties: Cook, DuPage, Henry, Kankakee, Lake, Macoupin, Madison, Marion, Menard, St. Clair and Winnebago.

    The money will pay for developing strategies to coordinate public housing programs with public and private social services. The goal is to help families earn more, become smarter about money, reduce reliance on welfare and progress toward independence.

    The City of Silvis is located in western Illinois near the Quad Cities. Initially named Pleasant Valley, Silvis was incorporated in 1906 and changed from a Village to a City in 1920.

    More than 100 young men and women from Second Street in Silvis have served the US military, according to the Department of Defense. No other street of comparable size has had as many men and women render service. Because of these contributions, the street was renamed Hero Street USA in 1967. In 1971, a city park was built and dedicated as Hero Street Park in honor of the 8 deceased servicemen from Hero Street USA.

    The city is also home to the John Deere Classic, which takes place Aug. 8-14 this year. TPC Deere Run’s golf course is built on the site of a former horse farm along the wooded ravines of the Rock River.
