Residential Reactivation Program
The pilot Incentive Policy for Residential Reactivation is designed to encourage Harvey residents and former residents and persons interested in becoming residents to become long-term homeowners while at the same time promoting reinvestment that will reverse or prevent blight. Ultimately this will assist the City in prevent and reversing population loss. As a pilot program, the program is available to a limited number of properties and program procedures are subject to change.
The City will undertake efforts to market the program to existing Harvey residents, former Harvey residents, and Thornton Township High School graduates interested in returning to Harvey, including but not limited to graduates who have completed “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) coursework. These efforts are designed to reverse population loss as described in Section I above.
