Community meetings provide the opportunity to build relationships, meet other Illinois residents, and learn about the needs and hopes for housing across the state.

As we build the Housing Blueprint over the coming years, we will be hosting community meetings throughout the state to meet residents in their hometowns and learn about their vision for the future. Find and attend a meeting in your area using the calendar or map below, or contact us if you are interested in hosting a meeting in your community.

In order to ensure the safety of residents in light of COVID-19, we will provide an option for virtual attendance at all of our meetings. The option for in-person attendance will vary by meeting dependent on the needs of our hosts across the state. Please contact us if you need assistance connecting to a virtual meeting by phone or video, or have any questions about an upcoming meeting in your area.
