The Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH) and the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA) are
excited to announce their partnership for the 2024 Illinois Supportive Housing Institute (“The Institute”). The 2024 Institute will be held in Champaign, IL and will address the statewide need for Permanent Supportive Housing.
The Institute is made possible with the support from the Illinois Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
This Request for Application (RFA) intends to select teams to participate in the Institute. Over a course of 5 months, the Institute will provide targeted training and technical assistance that will result in a supportive housing project development proposal. Upon completion, teams are ready to apply for pre-development financing. Teams are comprised at minimum of a Developer partner, Property Management partner, and a Supportive Services partner. Teams are strongly encouraged to also include a person with lived experience.
The Institute will create a strong foundation for new supportive housing projects and help build strong teams equipped to navigate the complex process of developing housing with supportive services.
All applications are due February 8, 2024
An informational webinar was held on January 9, 2024 to provide an overview of the Supportive Housing Institute and how to get involved. The webinar recording can be found here.
