April 18, 2023 — The City of South Bend’s Department of Public Works is now accepting applications for the 2023 Curb & Sidewalk Reimbursement Program, which helps property owners in making repairs to curbs, sidewalks and ADA curb ramps bordering their properties.
Anyone who is a homeowner or property owner, including businesses, within the city limits can participate in the program. The reimbursement rates for the program are listed below. The City has also established target areas based on household income and conditions of the sidewalks. The target areas change every year to spread the benefit across parts of the city that need it the most. Homeowners who live within these target areas will receive a higher reimbursement amount. More information about the program and target areas can be found in the attached brochure or at southbendin.gov/curbsidewalkprogram.

|CURB||$15 per linear ft.||$30 per linear ft.||$7.50 per linear ft.|
|SIDEWALK||$20 per linear ft.||$40 per linear ft.||$10 per linear ft.|
|ADA CURB RAMP||$950 per ramp||$950 per ramp||$950 per ramp|
