Since 1976 we have built, renovated or preserved more than 4,100 homes—apartments, condominiums, and single-family housing.
“The City of Chicago is now and has always been a city of diverse and thriving neighborhoods. Quality housing is a cornerstone for healthy neighborhoods." - Mayor Rahm Emanuel
Community development is more than laying bricks and mortar, it's about laying a foundation for successful living. HHDC provides crucially-needed, high-quality, safe, and affordable housing for family and elderly residents.
We invest in neighborhoods where there is opportunity for growth and prosperity by developing housing that remains affordable.
Our in-house property management division helps us maintain high-quality assets and enhances the quality of life for residents.
Affordable rents help residents remain in communities undergoing gentrification. In addition, a variety of affordable financing programs promote homeownership. Many of our lending partners offer down-payment assistance or below market-rate financing for qualified buyers.
