Housing Grants

CHICAGO (AP) -- Illinois residents will benefit from nearly three-point-two million dollars in federal affordable housing rehabilitation grants.

The money will go to help 89 low-income homeowners pay for urgent home repairs and to prevent them from losing their homes.

The Illinois Housing Development Authority has allocated the federal HOME funds to 13 municipalities and agencies. They'll administer the money under the Single-Family Owner-Occupied Rehabilitation Program.

I-H-D-A Executive Director DeShana Forney says that program will make sure the homes meet construction codes and are safe places to live.
