Capacity Building for Housing Counselors
Housing Action Illinois helps housing counselors and their agencies build their skills and capacity so they can provide the best housing and housing-related services to renters and homeowners. Our experts coordinate and teach regular workshops for counselors and offer one-on-one support and direct technical assistance to organizations. We want to make sure that agencies throughout Illinois can keep up with changing trends, new technology, and complicated regulations.
We also organize collaborative discussion groups and facilitate the Illinois Housing Counseling Coalition, a statewide coalition that brings agencies together to strategize and share resources. Finally, as an Intermediary, we distribute HUD Housing Counseling Funds and provide infrastructural and administrative support to a network of regional affiliates.
