Join us in Bloomington on October 26 & 27

Since our beginning 30 years ago, Housing Action Illinois has brought housing practitioners and advocates together from across Illinois to foster collaborative relationships and strengthen communities. Each year, hundreds join us at our annual conference to learn best practices, get updates on the latest issues in housing from leaders in the field, and network. Together, we build expertise, experience, and the capacity to make our communities better. This year, in addition to our usual programming, we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary!

Regular registration: $225 (member)  |  $325 (nonmember)

The deadline for early bird registration and scholarship applications has passed.



Our conference will take place in Bloomington, IL at the DoubleTree by Hilton. Unfortunately, the DoubleTree has already been completely booked for the nights of October 25 and 26. We suggest staying at our overflow hotel, Eastland Suites (located at 1801 Eastland Drive, 2.3 miles from the Doubletree).
