At IHDA, we believe every person, regardless of illness or limitation, should have the freedom to choose to live as independently as possible in settings appropriate to their own personal needs and preferences. That is why we commit significant resources to the development of permanent affordable housing that offers elective supportive services that allow residents to achieve long-term housing stability.
If you are interested in developing supportive housing but don’t know where to begin, check out the tools and resources in the side bar for assistance.
If you are a developer or sponsor searching for a listing of Permanent Supportive Housing Development Program submissions and approvals, you can find them in the Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) section in the Development Resource Center.
2020 Permanent Supportive Housing Development Program Round VII Request for Applications
The Illinois Housing Development Authority (“IHDA”) is now accepting applications under its Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) Development Program to subsidize developments serving special needs and/or otherwise vulnerable populations, persons with disabilities, and/or those who need reduced barriers to housing because they are ex-offenders or transition-aged youth.
Eligible developments will generally have 40 or fewer units and must commit at least 10% of the units for referrals through the Statewide Referral Network. A project concept meeting and approval of a Preliminary Project Assessment are required prior to submitting an application. Funding will be awarded to the highest scoring applications.
Questions and requests for project concept meetings should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Preliminary Project Assessments are due to IHDA by 5:00 p.m. on August 14, 2020.
Applications are due to IHDA by 5:00 p.m. on October 30, 2020.
