IHDA accepting applications for Abandoned Property/Blight Reduction Programs


Dear Mayors, Managers, and Staff: If you would like assistance with this application or plan on applying, please contact Lakeshia Wright at

From the Illinois Housing and Development Authority web site:

Revitalization And Repair Programs IHDA understands that investing in homes and communities across the state is an effective way to combat the ongoing effects of the housing crisis and assist with revitalization efforts. We work with local governments and non-profit organizations to offer programs that address vacant residential properties and the blight that usually follows to benefit communities. We also fund programs that allow homeowners to make necessary repairs and accessibility improvements, allowing residents stay in their homes while improving the quality of single-family housing and helping to create vibrancy in neighborhoods throughout Illinois.

The application is now available here under the APP tab and is due by Friday, 10/14/16 by 3pm. We will also be hosting an application webinar on Wednesday, 9/28/16, at 10 a.m. Webinar instructions: Event: APP Application Webinar Event address for attendees: Date and time: Wednesday, September 28, 2016 10:00 a.m. Central Daylight Time (Chicago, GMT-05:00), Duration: 1 hour Event number: 403 719 813 Event password: September Audio conference: US Toll +1-415-655-0002 Access code: 403 719 813 Questions: Please email
