Revitalization And Repair Programs

IHDA understands that communities across the state have been impacted by the housing crisis.  In response, we created programs to address rundown or vacant residential properties and the blight that usually follows.

Through our Abandoned Property Program and Blight Reduction Program we are helping communities turn vacant and blighted properties into assets and renewing the neighborhoods to whose decline they contributed.

You can send us an email to be notified when these programs solicit applications for funding.

Through our Acquisition and Rehabilitation Program we are incenting buyers to purchase vacant properties in select counties throughout Illinois by offering up to $5,000 in down payment or closing cost assistance and up to $20,000 in rehabilitation assistance. To learn how to bring this program to your community, contact our Homeownership Department at (877) 456-2656 or AtHomeIllinois@ihda.org.
