Financing Solutions for the Illinois Housing Market

May 2, 11:15 a.m. - Noon

The changes and trends in the affordable housing industry have a large impact on Illinois communities. Continuing to provide a proper number of homes affordable to low and moderate income households is increasingly difficult. But, there are a number of financing strategies for these developments. This session focuses on the Illinois housing market, and how agencies are responding to low income housing tax credit market changes.
