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.

Funded by the Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund, HAP provides funding to units of local government and non-profit organizations throughout the State to provide home accessibility grants to their local constituency. These grants help people stay in their homes and prevent premature or unnecessary institutionalization of the elderly and people with disabilities.

IHDA does not directly fund homeowners. If you are a homeowner looking for repair funds, a listing of funded organizations will be available soon.  You may also contact a housing counselor to help you understand what options are available to you.
