Illinois Housing Grants

Illinois will receive more than $7 million in federal housing grants to improve local communities by providing shelter and affordable housing. 

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin, says the money comes from three Department of Housing and Urban Development grant programs. The programs help local government redevelop and provide suitable housing for those living urban areas, which are often the poorest members of the community.
