Rental Housing Support Program

Al Shaw

While CRS can celebrate some terrific victories, including advancing the Illinois Sealing Bill (HB 5723) out of the House Judiciary II Committee and unfreezing the Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund, that provides $15 million for the development of affordable housing, one important issue of our Platform for Renewal still needs to be accomplished. The budget that the legislature sent to Gov. Pat Quinn still leaves $16 million untouched in the Rental Housing Support Program Fund (RHSPF), to be swept to pay other bills rather than to expand the number of low-income families, people with disabilities and people on fixed incomes who can receive rental assistance.
