Preserving Assisted Properties Workshop

December 3 and 4, 2012
222 S. Riverside Plaza, Suite 1900

On December 3 and 4, nearly 150 owners and managers of assisted properties and staff of Community Housing Development Organizations (CHDOs) attended a workshop designed to help Cook County buildings with multiple funding sources tackle operating and monitoring challenges.

The workshop was sponsored by HUD, The Preservation Compact, and our partners from the Illinois Housing Development Authority, the Cook County Bureau of Economic Development, and the City of Chicago Department of Housing and Economic Development. 

Participants learned about improving building operations, navigating monitoring and compliance related to HOME, Project Based Vouchers and other funding sources, and understanding strategies related to energy, property taxes, and bedbugs.
