Housing Action Illinois is a statewide coalition formed to protect and expand the availability of quality, affordable housing throughout Illinois.
We are proud and excited to accept an Intermediary award of $1,259,176 from HUD, which we will distribute to our network of 33 nonprofits whose counseling programs help families rent or buy safe, affordable homes and prevent foreclosures. “Essentially, what this award means is that we can help thousands more families in the region understand their housing options,” Housing Action’s Director of Capacity Building, David Young explains. “By expanding our network and increasing our sub-grants, we create more opportunities for families and communities to thrive.” Learn more »

These collaborations will expand access to affordable housing and promote economic development opportunities for low- and moderate- income residents throughout Illinois.
