Print What Is Affordable Housing? - Chicago Edition

The phrase “affordable housing” seems plain enough, but it doesn’t always mean what people think it does. It actually has a technical definition, which can determine what gets built and who gets to live there. What Is Affordable Housing? Chicago Edition helps communities answer the all-important question, “Affordable to whom?” The guidebook uses pictures and diagrams to walk you through affordable housing policy in Chicago. It includes the first-ever illustrated survey of Chicago affordable housing programs and is conveniently pocket-sized, so you can bring it along to your next community meeting.

Check out the New York City version of the Guidebook–part of our Affordable Housing Toolkit–here
