Blight Reduction Program

For information on the newest HHF program, the Blight Reduction Program (“BRP”), please click here.

BRP, created in the Spring of 2014 will be used by IHDA to decrease preventable foreclosures and stabilize neighborhoods by supporting Illinois units of government and their Not-For-Profit Partners as they target blighted, vacant, residential properties in specific communities for demolition, greening, and eventual reuse or redevelopment.
