What will you do to ensure that there is an adequate supply of affordable family sized units available to families in the Section 8 program?

Housing & Affordability

No response provided

The Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) Program is one of the main resources for the creation and preservation of affordable rental units. The City of Chicago receives a direct allocation from the Internal Revenue Service and the tax credits are converted to equity to assist in financing rental developments. As mayor, I will work with my housing team to ensure that developments contain a mix of units, including units for families. As alderman, I made this a priority and most recently supported a multifamily development near Jackson and Western.
