The Housing Blueprint is a plan informed by and created for the many people and communities of Illinois.

We are committed to constructing a plan that is inclusive of and relevant to all individuals across our state. We invite and strongly encourage all residents of Illinois to complete the following survey to share with us their experiences, perspectives, needs, and hopes for the future.

This survey contains 6 sections that ask questions surrounding you and your community’s assets, needs, and vision for the future. Survey responses are completely anonymous and every question except for respondent Zip Code is optional.

Please complete as many sections and questions as you like – you do not need to complete all questions. If you need help filling out this survey, please select the button below:
