ILLINOIS STATE SENATE DISTRICT 15: Harris announces state grant that provides tax relief for South Suburbs


By Press release submission | Feb 5, 2020


Illinois State Senate District 15 issued the following announcement on Jan. 30.

State Senator Napoleon Harris, III (D-Harvey) recently announced a state grant that provides tax relief for several communities in his district.

“I am happy to announce several school districts in the South Suburbs will receive property tax relief,” Harris said. “I understand there are more communities that can benefit from this grant and that’s why I hope more schools take advantage of the funding opportunity.”

The Property Tax Relief Grant helps school districts with high tax rates relative to other school districts by giving them an opportunity to lower the property tax burden on local taxpayers with the state by replacing a portion of foregone tax revenue with state funds.

The amount the school districts receive will be included in future calculations of those districts.

School districts receiving Property Tax Relief Grant include:

Dolton School District 148

Ford Heights School District 169

Hazel Crest School District 152.5

South Holland School District 151

Thornton Township High School District 205
