Valley Hi Nursing Home, McHenry County's long-term skilled nursing facility, has amassed a fund surplus of approximately $40 million, or enough to cover more than three years of operations. After months of discussion, the McHenry County Board voted on April 16, 2019, to rebate $15 million of it back to homeowners who take the homestead exemption. The Illinois Fiscal Responsibility Act provides the process by which surplus funds can be rebated. The Valley Hi rebate program follows this law.
