Together with partners and funders, we’ve helped create or preserve 22,000 affordable homes for families by leveraging over $1.6 billion in capital across the region.

Some of our key programs include:

  • Equitable Path Forward: Supports BIPOC housing providers with access to capital, advisory services, and leadership training.
  • Fifth Third’s Empowering Black Futures: Promotes equitable growth and economic mobility in South Chicago in collaboration with local organizations.
  • Decarbonization Hub: Connects multifamily portfolio owners to resources that support electrification projects through an online platform.
  • Chicago Flats Initiative: Advocates for the preservation of Chicago’s two- to four-flats to provide affordable rental and homeownership opportunities.
  • Elevated Chicago: Collaborates across sectors to promote equitable transit-oriented development of public spaces, buildings and vacant land.
  • Qualified Allocation Plan Racial Equity Impact Assessment: Ensures that developments supported by Low-Income Housing Tax Credits are equitably allocated

Chicago Health and Housing Dashboard

The Chicago Health and Housing Dashboard brings together publicly available data from various sources to allow practitioners to visualize the relationships between housing and health as they begin to devise strategies to reduce health disparities as they relate to the built environment.
