The lack of affordable housing continues to challenge our communities and impacts a wide spectrum of people – from homeless youth and families to seniors, immigrants, working families, and individuals with disabilities. The need for affordable housing presents different challenges in different locations-- from gentrification in appreciating markets to the need for revitalization and redevelopment in others. Explore a variety of federal, state, and local financing and policy tools (from the City of Chicago’s Affordable Requirements Ordinance to federal and state tax credits) that can be used to create, preserve and expand affordable housing in urban, suburban and rural communities.
