Fellow Elmhurst Residents, 

Our lives have significantly changed in a short period of time. The City of Elmhurst has been closely monitoring the impact of COVID-19 and has acted quickly in taking preventative measures to combat the spread of this virus. While we have adjusted some of our operations to protect the public and our employees, we continue to operate without compromising essential and vital services to our community. 

We all have a role to play during this unprecedented time. Our City Employees are dedicated to continuing to serve the Elmhurst community. I’m asking you to also be dedicated to your community by following the health guidelines that now must be part of our everyday lives. I can assure you that we will continue with our mission, please join us in doing your part.


Jim Grabowski, 
City Manager
We’re calling all residents to get creative! Send us your pictures and videos on how you and your families are staying positive and having fun through the State’s "Stay at Home Order". We will collect this content through the month of April, and feature it on our website and social pages. Some of the submissions may also make a debut in the next City of Elmhurst Front Porch Newsletter.
All you have to do is fill out this form!

Volunteer Opportunities
There are many volunteer opportunities for Elmhurst residents to help their community respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.   Please follow this link for information
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) includes $2+ trillion in funding including: immediate cash relief for individual citizens; a broad lending program for small business; and, targeted relief for hard-hit industries. 

Struggling to get started?  The following questions might help point you in the right direction. Do you need:
  • Capital to cover the cost of retaining employees? Then the Paycheck Protection Program might be right for you.
  • A quick infusion of a smaller amount of cash to cover you right now? You might want to look into an Emergency Economic Injury Grant.
  • To ease your fears about keeping up with payments on your current or potential SBA loan? The Small Business Debt Relief Program could help.
  • Just some quality, free counseling to help you navigate this uncertain economic time? The resource partners might be your best bet.
To date 58.4% of Elmhurst household's have self-responded online or by phone. Self-responding keeps a US Census taker from coming to your door in weeks to come. Now more than ever it is vital that the Census is completed and self-responding is the safest way to complete your civic duty. Please fill out the online Census for your household today at  www.my2020census.gov   or call (844)330-2020 and be counted! The process is quick, easy, and safe - Everyone Counts Elmhurst!

What is Amy and her family doing to stay positive and have fun through the State’s "Stay at Home Order"?

"Baking homemade bread, it’s a great lesson in home economics/math and patience! My husband, Jim, and daughter, Mary worked on it for 2 days. It was delicious!"

Thank you for your commitment to loving our community. #ElmhurstStaysHome
