The Illinois Housing Development Authority’s mission is to finance the creation and preservation of affordable housing in Illinois.

As an independent, self-supporting agency, we administer a number of state and federal resources and issue bonds based on our own strong credit rating. Our programs allow families to buy and maintain affordable homes and our investments result in in quality developments that generate jobs and dollars for the state’s economy. We invested $2.1 billion in 16,321 units of affordable housing in FY2015, generating $815.9 million for Illinois’ economy, creating 12,300 jobs and helping families find quality, affordable homes throughout the state.
