The 2021 Housing Blueprint

After more than a year of resident engagement, data collection, and analysis, the first annual installment of the Housing Blueprint is complete and available to view online. We invite all individuals to browse the plan and provide their feedback, questions, and hopes for future installments by submitting their thoughts and comments on this website’s Contact Us page. In the coming weeks, visit this website for additional resources that share insights from the plan, including interactive maps, local data, and stories from residents across our state.

IHDA thanks all individuals who assisted this process and helped to create a vision for housing in Illinois. We look forward to continuing this work with all residents in the years to come.

A Collaborative Plan for Illinois

The Housing Blueprint is a statewide planning endeavor that will develop a vision for the future of housing in Illinois, and lay out a plan for achieving it. The Blueprint is coordinated by the Illinois Housing Development Authority (IHDA), however it is a product of the collective participation and collaboration of a wide and diverse group of agencies, organizations, and residents from across the state. Together, these groups have committed to sharing their perspectives, knowledge, and expertise to link to and leverage existing efforts already underway. The Blueprint also strives to engage and raise the voices of all Illinoisans to understand the realities, needs, and hopes for housing within communities both now and in the future. Repeated on an annual basis, the Housing Blueprint provides an opportunity to reflect on our state’s past impacts and achievements, assess opportunities for growth and change, and continually engage residents to be more inclusive of and relevant to the many communities throughout our state. We invite all individuals to take part in the Blueprint’s process.
