New Law Signed to Assist Disabled Veterans

Legislation that aims to alleviate some of the financial burdens placed on disabled veterans in Illinois was signed into law on July 1. This new law waives permit fees for disabled veterans who need to modify their homes for accessibility.
Previously, disabled veterans returning from service who needed to adapt their homes were required to pay permit fees to their local government in addition to covering the cost of their renovation. This added financial strain often made essential home modifications even more challenging.
Senate Bill 2751 specifically addresses the issue by waiving permit fees for disabled veterans making necessary home modifications.
The bill passed both chambers unanimously and was signed into law on July 1, 2024, and will take effect January 1, 2025.
