Affordable Housing

The Department of Planning and Development manages affordable housing programs in suburban and unincorporated Cook County.

About Us
The Cook County Department of Planning and Development (DPD) Affordable Housing Division is largely supported with Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) funds provided annually by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Three one-time allocations of Federal Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) from HUD are supplementing these existing, ongoing funds.

Relevant activities include fair housing planning/administration, housing development and services.

Please note – Cook County affordable housing funding for programs and projects is restricted to suburban Cook County. Additional requirements and restrictions also apply.
