The historic flood of 2008 caused widespread damage and interruption to residents’ everyday life throughout the Village, which spurred the Village to embark on a flood mitigation program to reduce the costs and impact of future flooding.

The Village has been awarded three phases of HMGP funding which have all been completed. The buyout program has been funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which is administered through the IL Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), and the IL Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). The agencies providing the funding have the authority to identify the requirements and eligibility for each grant.

The purpose of FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) is to help communities implement hazard mitigation measures following a Presidential major disaster declaration. Hazard mitigation is any action taken to reduce or eliminate long term risk to people and property from natural hazards.

Winnebago County recently updated the county-wide hazard mitigation plan, which included the Village of Machesney Park and can be found on their website per the link below. The plan is a requirement in order to maintain eligibility for receiving grant funding related to disaster assistance.

The Village applied for and received funding for acquisition projects to remove residents and structures from the hazard area and the Village retains the parcels as open green space. To learn more about the general process of the buyout program please Click Here.

Participation in this program is voluntary. If you wish to sign up for the voluntary buyout program, please complete the below form and return to Village Hall. Your property will be added to the waiting list and considered as additional funding becomes available and based upon the requirements of the grant.

Notice of Voluntary Interest form

The Village maintains a list of those properties that have submitted a Notice of Voluntary Interest (NOVI) form and are waiting funding. If you have previously filled out a NOVI form, but do not see your property listed please contact the Village.

The below list of properties (sorted by address) have submitted a Notice of Voluntary Interest (NOVI) form to the Village and will be considered if future grant funding becomes available.
