Prairie Village residents Kirk and Rachel Chonis used a city exterior grant program to improve their first home; it’s one of several such programs available in Johnson County. Their house at 79th Street and Roe Avenue got new windows, entry doors, siding, fascia and gutters. Under the program, the city reimburses residents for 20 percent of total project costs exceeding $5,000. “Getting money back was very helpful,” says Kirk Chonis.
