Affordable housing in Chicago

As we recognize Martin Luther King Jr. Day this week, it is an appropriate time to asses the current state of affordable housing in Chicago. Dr. King Jr. and his wife Coretta moved to Chicago in 1966 to bring attention to housing issues. More recently, in fall of 2019, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot created a new affordable housing task force to help guide the administration on policies aimed at addressing the citywide shortage of affordable housing. The Mayor is looking to pass new rules, including those around the current Affordable Requirements Ordinance, by mid-year. Curbed Chicago, Crain's Chicago Business, ABC-7, Chicago Sun-Times, and The DePaulia wrote about the affordable housing issues, in Chicago this week, including possible solutions and how local communities are grappling with this issue.

ON TO 2050 calls for a mix of housing in the region that meets residents' needs, including affordable and accessible housing.

To learn more about the latest ideas in affordable housing, plan to attend The Illinois Housing Council’s upcoming conference Illinois Affordable Housing Forum: Building a Better Future on Monday and Tuesday, March 2-3, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Chicago (151 E. Wacker Dr., Chicago). Register by Friday, February 14.

 

Stormwater management call for projects

Local governments, such as municipalities, townships, county agencies, and park and school districts, are invited to apply for the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) Stormwater Partnership Program, which provides funding, engineering, or other assistance to address local flooding within MWRD's corporate boundaries. Applications are due Friday, February 14, by 5:00 p.m.
