The Village offers several special services for Senior Citizens as well as Residents with Disabilities. These programs are described below and any application forms are linked to below so they can be either printed out, scanned, and then emailed to the Village or printed out and mailed in.

Senior Snow Removal Application 2022-2023:

The Village offers a senior citizen snow removal program to assist in the snow removal on private property of eligible senior citizens (65 years of age or older) and disabled citizens. The program is designed to remove snow from driveways and sidewalks/stairs leading into the home. This is a cost sharing program to assist seniors with the cost of this service. The interested participants must apply annually and meet eligibility requirements. Residents who participated in the program in 2021-2022 will be eligible to re-apply.  Please return the completed application via email to or in person/by mail to Village Hall 9526 W. Irving Park Rd., Schiller Park, IL 60176 by November 18, 2022. 

Senior/Disable Snow Removal Program Qualifications 

  •  MUST reside at the address in Schiller Park for which they are requesting service.
  • Every member of the household must be at least 65 years of age OR disabled. Residents who met eligibility requirement during the 2021-2022 program year who were not 65 would remain eligible provided they re-apply. As part of the application process an SSA declaration or valid doctor’s note must be included stating why they are unable to remove snow. These forms must be included with the application each year. Residents who do not include valid information that includes each member of their household will be removed from the program and deemed ineligible for future participation and subject to a $100 fine.
  •  MUST complete the senior citizen snow removal program application on an annual basis. Applications received after the first snow event will be prorated when the direct payment option is processed.
  •  This program is restricted to single family homes only. Owners of buildings with multiple units who receive payment for rent are ineligible for this program.
