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.

Through our Abandoned Property Program and Blight Reduction Program we are helping communities turn vacant and blighted properties into assets and renewing the neighborhoods for overall community revitalization and stabilization. Click here for a side-by-side comparison of the programs to determine which is best suited for your community.

Applications are now available for the Abandoned Property Program, Round 2, and are due by Friday, October 21 at 3:00 p.m.  We will also be hosting an application webinar on Wednesday, September 28, at 10:00 a.m.  Webinar instructions are listed below:
