HODC is proud to be awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) by Governor JB Pritzker and the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) Board to fund two new housing projects that will serve an additional 98 families in Illinois. Funds raised from the tax credits will finance the creation of a 48 unit affordable housing development for families and individuals living with a disability in Northbrook and a 50 unit affordable housing development for low- and moderate-income households in McHenry.

“We’re just so excited to be able to move these projects forward,” said Richard Koenig, HODC’s Executive Director. “We know that the homes we create thanks to these funds will make a world of difference for the people who will live in these developments.”
